    Default Aquila Shotshells in Rem. 870?

    does anyone have any experience using, or trying, the short 1.5 in. Aguila shotshells in a Rem 870 shotgun? Seems as tho I heard there was some sort of timing issue in regards to the shell latch, or carrier, needing some tinkering. I have set up an 870 for HD, and obviously like the idea of LOTS more rounds in the gun, if they'll work. Thanks in advance, for your help. Kahrmonger10

    If I remember correctly my 870 didn't like them but my Mossberg 500 loved them. If I get a chance this morning I'll try them in my 870 and see how they do.

    My 870 eats them with no problems. Have only tried the slugs though.

    Sorry I didn't get a chance to check my 870 until now. Mine won't cycle the 1 1/2 Aguila rounds it's the 2" 1250fps Centurion rounds that it likes. The Aguila rounds are not really 1 1/2" long they are just over 1.300 long and will flip straight up when cycled.

    I'd be curious as to how these will cycle in a Benelli.
