load the mossy 930 can cycle?

I was just wondering what light loads the mossberg 930 can cycle w/o jamming. I am sure they will cycle the high brass 2 3/4 ok but I am wondering about the light game loads. What loads have you cycled or had jam on you. Mine will be here soon so I am gathering info now.

I have only had one load fail to cycle even with mixed loads.

The load? A 16 gauge high base. It cycled and fired, but got stuckin the chamber.

I've got two 930's, the lightest load I've cycled in my 28" field gun was a 3/4 oz hand load that was probably in the 1200fps range.

My 930SPX hasn't failed to cycle any 1oz target load that I've tried, I have also shot several different brands of low recoild buckshot with no problems.
