Does anyone have any experience with these in an 870 ?

i have NOT had experience with them, so this is just what i have heard, so take it with a grain of salt. they say 870s and most pumps wont reliably feed them without modification to the extractor. i hear ithicas will feed them stock

I shot some this past Sunday with 3 other MN ARFcommers. It was InuhBadNeighborhood's shotgun and shells.

The action has to be cycled fast otherwise they shift and kinda jam, then you have to pull the slide back a little, let the shell reseat then slam it home.

I love the mini slugs. They're a hoot to shoot and a ton of fire-power in a little package.

I was able to modify a 870 to semi-reliably feed the mini shells by ramping the barrel a little. The extractor is not the issue, it's the lifter. It doesn't always bring the little shell high enough so it hangs up on entering the chamber. Ramping the barrel lowered the entry point and allowed the shells to feed.

My Benelli M3 doesn't work with them. Upon cycling the pump 2 rounds feed from the magazine onto the lifter.
