so im new to shotguns, but really enjoy them. in my opinion they are a must have weapon.
im looking for maximum versatility for my final kit.
i just picked up an fd12 bullpup semi-auto, heres a review vid of a slightly different model:
now for the questions.
1. it says it needs 100 rounds of "heavy load" to break in, then it will cycle both light and heavy loads. does this refer to "high velocity" or
to the size of the shot? should i focus on the speed rather than the size for the "breakin" phase? or just grab a bunch of 3" 00 buck, an arm sling
for after, and call it a day?
2. i know there are different choke thread patterns. my mossberg choke screwed in no trouble, so when buying chokes should i just make sure it fits
mossberg, or is there a specific pattern i should look for? or should i just find a conversion chart like this one
) and basically just buy for the mossberg i have?
3. the barrel is only 18.5", so im thinking that for skeet, birds, and long distance (100 yards) hunting a 6" barrel extension would be nice (once i
find the thread pattern). one rifled for sabot, one smooth for for skeet, birds. whatcha think? good idea?
4. so im thinking, from what ive read, that #4 shot is the most versatile. one for field, one for game. sabots for long range deer and pig. 25 of each
just to have, plus 25 of #4 buck for home defense. 100 target loads for skeet.
so there you have it. any advice, suggestions, definitions will be appreciated.
