    I read this in another post. Is this true? I haven't heard of this before. A slug getting all sideways & obstructing the bore could be quite hazardous, to say the least.

    Never heard of it before personally. I also do not know of a 3.5" gun that is not backbored AND lengthened in the forcing cone, both of which should negate any wobbling. I see at worst it will really suck for accuracy, I don't see that it will hurt the gun at all.

    The post is total rubbish, ARGarrison is wrong.

    From Remington's website:

    "In many cases, shotguns with 3" or 3-1/2" chambers also function with shorter shells (like the Remington Model 870 Express Super Magnum). Shotguns with 2-3/4" chambers and barrels are designed for use with 2-3/4" shells ONLY."


    Edit: Deleted question.
    found the post redundant question.

    I was told this by a person I really belived he knew of what he was talking about, but the only thing I can find to support my statement is this;

    http://www.mossberg.com/faqs.htm#fireslugs

    It applies only to Mossberg 835s with Field Barrels. This is probally where my source was getting his information.

    I also took into account Lightfield warning on the back of thier 2 3/4" sabot slug which states, "Not Recommend for 3 1/2" Chambers"

    When I originaly wrote the statement it should have been "Should Not" instead of "Can Not", because you can.

    Nuff' said.
