It just depends on how you have your gun tuned. I can shoot Winchester Bulk Pack through mine. That's pretty low recoil stuff.

Unless your gun is brand new or undergassed you are fine, mine shoots low recoil slugs fine. I have 3 ports with one partially covered but my gun has lots of rounds through it.

Ok cool, mine ran Fed bulk #7.5 and #8 right out of the box on setting 2 so I guess I am good to go.

I just got back home from shooting over 200 rounds using all 3" slugs, buck and steel shot and let me tell you, my s12 really got beat to shit. My shark brake, Chaos rail, and Tromix charge handle are loose, the rubber plug kept working itself out of my foregrip and the fucking dust cover flew off after about 50 rounds. I try to stay away from the red loctite for future purposes but I guess that needs to change.. Still can't figure out how my dust cover broke loose..?

Fuck it :super:

The greatest hypnotist on the planet earth is an oblong box in the corner of the room. It is constantly telling us what to believe is real.
The greatest form of control is when you think you're free, when you're being fundamentally manipulated and dictated to. One form of dictatorship is being in a prison cell and you can see the bars and touch them. The other one is sitting in a prison cell but you can't see the bars, but you think you're free.
What the human race is suffering from is mass hypnosis. We are being hypnotized by people like this: Newsreaders, politicians, teachers and lecturers. We are in a country and in a world that is being run by unbelievably sick people. The chasm between what we're told is going on and what's really going on is absolutely enormous.

Hell yeah it was a great time! Not to mention a good friend of mines cousin was up from Puerto Rico so I had to show him how we do it out here in America :super:

I been doing alot of reading and am stuck between the vplug and the autoplug, but regardless stilll using the factory gas plug. Began with the 45 rounds of birdshot I had left over, because aside from a few boxes of buckshot that is all I shoot. Drum, two dumps of 10 rd. stick,and 5 rd mag.

Switched over my gas plug to setting 1 and continued to let loose with nothing but 3" of all sorts of shit like I stated above. 10 rounds rapid fire back to back to back until what I remember was the fifth mag when my dust cover flew off about 3 or 4 rounds in. It scared the shit outta me so we stopped and I took apart the s12, sprayed down the bolt/bolt carrier with some PB blaster, cleaned it up and reassembled. (that probably didn't do much but alcohol makes you cautious) We blew through the rest of what I had with no dust cover problems. During that time I had to re-tighten my tromix shark brake and css barrel nut a few times, and the rubber plug from my tapco foregrip must of fell out a dozen times. My chaos rail and tromix charging handle were also loose by time we finished. I'm pretty sure red loctite could of solved most of these issues but my main concern is the dust cover flying off. To my knowledge the S12 is supposed to fire these rounds reliably.

Anyways it was a fucking blast no pun intended :smoke:

I couldn't help but laugh at your post. I can just picture your gun literally getting the shit beat out of it with all your gear coming loose and flying off. The dust cover part is strange. I thought I was going to break my thumb trying to get mine off when the BHO lever locked it back. Talk about a shit load of tension!

You may be better off with an aftermarket plug. You may be able to limit more gas for those powerful rounds.

Thanks,


A friend shoots them out of his Saiga without any problems. He gave me a 5 pack and I found it last week when I was cleaning the gun room, but haven't shot them yet. Supposed to be pretty good ammo.
