When I was reading up on the performance of the Agulia Mini-Shells (buckshot) I read somewhere that the Winchester 1200/1300 would feed them without the use of a adapter.

Well a Win. 1300 Defender came my way for cheap today so I bought it. 18.5" barrel, 8+1 capacity with 2.75" shells. I tried the mini shells and they fed/extracted just fine and the gun holds 12 of them...11+1.

A also tried a combination of 1.75", 2.75", and 3" shells in the mag tube and everything worked just fine.

That's good to know.

I'm really only interested in the minis for use in my Tac-14...in which they reportedly won't work even with an adapter.

I had one exactly like that, gave it to my stepson. It fed and fired the Aguila mini shells perfectly.

Gonna have to give these mini-shells a chance. Thanks for the report. Also been eyeing the Hogue furniture for the 1300.

The 12" LOP looks interesting.

I have a 1300 Defender and it feeds Mini shells (slugs) without a problem.

The slugs are interesting.....Power-wise they are akin to a .69 .45acp. They are small but they are no joke.

But what is the point? Why reduce a 12ga to a .410

The point is to get almost twice as many shells in the mag tube.

The slugs are 7/8 ounce at 1250 fps which is roughly 1350 ft lbs of muzzle energy making an approx .70 cal hole.

Much hotter that a .410 and .45 Auto

The downside is they're twice as expensive as regular 2 3/4" slugs and may not feed reliably in your pump and will not cycle a semi auto.
