Has anyone else had this problem?
Both my father and I have Mossberg 835 Utra-mags. that we purchased in January. I was pattering mine and the Federal Premium 2 1/4 oz, 3 1/2" magnum shot shells would jam in the receiver. The open shell was too big to expel. I used Remington 3" Nitro turkey loads and was impressed with the pattern so I never tried any other shells yet.
I asked my father if he had any problems. he thought he shot 3 1/2s without trouble but on the opening of the PA turkey season he shot a gobbler and the shell stuck. Luckily one shot was all he needed.
My friend has an older 835 and never had a problem. I will call Mossberg on this but was wondering if any one else had a problem. Appreciate any input.
