Rossi
[S121240STD]
$133.00
by Dan L Date Added: Wednesday 11 June, 2008
This gun shots very tight groups with extra full choke and is very accurate with several brands of foster type slugs when using the cylinder bore choke. Remington "Slugger 2 3/4 inch 7/8 oz. slugs grouped best at about 2 inches at 25 yards. Winchester Power Point 2 3/4 inch 1 oz. slugs came in second at just over 2 inches at 25 yards.

HOWEVER - This gun only weighs 6.25 lbs not 7.25 as listed on at Buds site. I shot about 30 slungs from bench rest and the recoil was very heavy. Then I tried the Fiocchi Golden Turkey 3 1/2 inch 2 3/8 ounce #6 loads. They made the recoil from the slug ammunition feel like I had been shooting a 410 shotgun but the groups were really great. At 25 yards, the center of the target is completely blown out but my shoulder felt like the target looked. I have been shooting shotguns and high powered rifles for 50 years and nothing else has ever recoiled even close to this gun/ammo combination.

With 2 3/4 inch 1 1/4 oz. ammunition, the gun still shoots very tight groups and the recoil is acceptable. But you are only sending about half the number of BB shot down range.

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]
