    Stopped over at Suffolk trap and skeet today to try out the A300 ( yes, in the heat of the day). Shot 2 rounds of skeet, did ok with sweat in the eyes. Like the gun a lot. Obviously a big upgrade from my 870. Shot mostly doubles cause I wanted to see how well the gas system cycled. Had a few jams but I believe it was because of the Winchester ammo. My buddy had problems with that ammo in his 870 a few weeks ago. Yaphank Kid confirmed my suspicion and we took the A300 back out with some fioccio ammo and fired off 3 rounds consecutively each and no issues cycling.

    A big thank you to Mike for your time at the end! Will try and remember some of those pointers you gave me! I will be back for a lesson or 2 in the near future

        I shot it. I just hang on, it breaks clays on its own

            Stoeger M3500 is perfect for the price and has similar Benelli inertia drive OS

                I have a used Super Black Eagle for sale, but I'm not sure it would be a good clay gun. It's going to take quite a load to cycle.
                These were made to shoot real birds, not clay ones. Probably need 1-1/8 ounces to cycle.
