    And it will run another thousand years, a fine weapon well worth the little extra weight to carry, if you are strong or a young man it is easy, elderly less felt recoil than a light model I would bet? Don't forget the brass ring and steel collar change for high and low brass, or high and low pressure created in the case of your reloads.

    It is indeed quite the beast. I'm fine with the recoil. It handles everything 2 3/4 just fine. I never put reloads through it. Only thing I ever had to replace was a pawl and the forearm stock which developed a split. Found a new one through Numrich in west Hurley,NY.

    Apart from shooting skeet and trap with my old light 12 when Winchester AA s were $2.00 a box new, Every 1-1/2 ounce field load and many cases of one ounce 7-1/2 loads, after I had acquired the hulls, were all reloads. Once I started loading and patterned my work on paper I never looked at factory ammunition again.

    My dads cousins shoot 1,000's of rounds a month and stopped reloading because lead got too expensive and it was easier to just buy it in bulk.

    I don't shoot nearly as much or as often so $20 for 100 shells is affordable fun for me.

    Off the shelf loads have been fine for my shooting. I don't have the need for such specifics for my boom stick.

    I only own the 870, but I think she would be o.k. with an open relationship. I'll have to wait until funds aren't as tight.
