thanks for the info BigBird , i did get it to shoot some factory low-brass loads
the other day. i just can't get it to shoot my reloads. i'm checking my recipe
next to see if my loads are not hot enough to cycle. the gun is pretty good
looking but, i don't think i'll keep it. it's the first recoil operated gun i've owned. the barrel does say 3 inch chamber but, i thought i could turn the
washer over and get a different reaction. nope, didn't work any better.
maybe i'll stick to gas operated actions.
