gunfun posted a topic in Reloading and Ammunition8 Pellet LE OOB Here is the recall info: http://www.remingtonle.com/pdf/ProductSafetyRecall-RR128B00.pdf New product: LE slugs:http://www.remingtonle.com/ammo/ss_slugger.htm Slightly different foster with a hard plastic cylindrical wad. It is supposed to hold the slug more concentric and force obturation better than previous rem sluggers. I don't know why they didn't just go brenneke style, since we all know it does better, but whatever. (And Rem does sell some Brenneke style slugs for about $3/shot, so it isn't as if they are denying the superiority...)
so today i picked up some remington express magnum 00 buckshot 3" as well as some 2-3/4" 1 oz. max dram slugs. i have a DPH arms gas plug. setting 1 on it is for magnum and slugs, and 6 is for spammo. I loaded up 5 rounds of the buckshot and fired, jam. knock it down to settings 2, fire, and jam. knocked it down to 3 and finished off the magazine no problem. set it back to 1 and loaded up the slugs and they all fired off without a hitch. The buckshot had considerably more recoil than the slugs but would only work on setting 3. anyone else experienced this or is there simply something i don't know about this ammo?
