Stoeger p350

Postby ky_gobbler12 » May 3rd, 2011, 11:07 am

Hey guys. I just bought a stoeger p350. What is everyone say about them? I put a primos tightwad choke on it and I get a very good pattern at 40 yards. I am also shooting Federal 3 1/2" shells through it. I really like the gun I was just wanting to know if anyone had any opions on it. Thanks

I have a stoeger .410 o/u I use for rabbit hunting. I have had no issues with it at all.

I just bought one myself. I had a Benelli Nova on layaway at Cabela's but just couldn't justify the extra $200 for basically the same gun with camo stock. I'm going to pattern it over the next two days. I don't know how to post pics but I'll post the numbers from my patterns and my overall opinion of the P350. Check back in a day or two.

Congratulations on your new P-350. That gun seems to present a real value and appears to be taking its share of the current market. Since it uses the Mobil Choke system, you have a lot of choices in choke tubes available to you.

I would recommend that you "deep clean" the bore. That helps at any stage of operation, from right out of the box or for a gun that has been shot hundreds of times. If you're not familiar with that process, you can find it at http://www.allaboutshooting.com

I'd also recommend that you try some 3" Hevi-13 "Bronze" shells with 2 oz. of #6 shot with that gun. I think you'll be very pleased with the results.

Thanks,
Clark

Today I went to the range twice with my new Stoeger P350. The first time I used the factory turkey choke with Win. HV 3", 1 3/4 oz., #5 & #6s. The patterns were terrible. Overall I absolutely love the gun. It's light, easy to clean, accurate - my POA & POI are the same at 40 yards. The gun kicks like crazy but there are factory and aftermarket products to ease recoil. On the second trip I used a TruGlo Gobble Stopper Extreme .665 choke at 40 yards. Here's my loads and patterns from the second trip to the range:

Hevi-13 "bronze", 3", 2 oz., #6, 1090 fps.
10 pellets in the vitals
81 pellets in the turkey outline
165 pellets in 8" circle

Federal FC, 3", 2 oz., #6, 1150 fps.
5 pellets in the vitals
54 pellets in the turkey outline
84 pellets in 8" circle

Winchester HV, 3", 1 3/4 oz., #6, 1300 fps.
3 pellets in the vitals
28 pellets in the turkey outline
63 pellets in 8" circle

To get an 8" circle I measured a paper plate and traced the outline. As you can see the HTL load was far better than either of the others. Overall I love the gun and I'm very satisfied with the HTL numbers. I can't wait for fall turkey. Hope this helps.
