870 vs. 870 Super Mag
I have been kicking around the idea of buying a used 870 Express Super Mag synthetic to use for a knockaround waterfowl gun, and also to put a cantilevered deer barrel on it. I own a Wingmaster now, but would like to reserve that for the field and for clays.
I have heard on many occasions that the Super Mag jams a lot and is not anywhere near as smooth as a 3" 870. I've also been told and have read that I really don't need a 3 1/2" shell for ducks and geese. Would the Mag shells give me enough advantage to offset the jamming issues I've read about? Thought I'd ask the experts...
