OK , I need to know the correct way to load these 2 shotguns, I've never owned an Auto loading SG, so dont know for sure about the correct way they are suppose to be loaded. A friend that has local auctions around here brought them to me for good cleaning and to make sure that they work OK.

The only way I can get them to work properly is to load a shell in the chamber,close the bolt,and with 2 rds in the tube it shoots excellent,both of them work the same way and both shoot fine this way.

What I want to know is ,is this the correct way to load them ?? ,and is this the way they are suppose to work??,I tryed putting a couple of shells in the tube,then pull the bolt back to load it, Nope wont do it on either SG, the bolt just stays back and when I hit the bolt release ,it just slams shut on a empty chamber.
Can someone Help Me Please !!!! Thanks for your Help !!! Ken

I have a few remington autos. I ALWAYS drop one into the ejection port and load from the bottom after that.

If I remember right the Remington, must be cocked before you can stuff the magazine tube. There does not need to be a round in there, it just needs cocked.
