Re: Browning Jam-o-matic
I have always liked the Browning rifles and shotguns because of there quality and
workmanship, But in My experience the autos are normally shell sensitive.(They have to be
set up for a particular load/pressure) and will not shoot different loads the same.
With that said most other autos have the same problem when switching from one shell
to another because if they are gas operated the port pressure will change and may not be
high enough to operate the action correctly, or it could be to high and make it hard on the
Gas guns like the M14, FN Fal and others have to be adjusted if you reload or use foreign
ammo in them and with shotguns it is normally a spring that has to be changed to
accommodate certain loads and this cannot be done it the field very easy. So testing at the
range is a must befor going to the field.
I bought an Extrema for Two reasons, It is purpose built and not a modified 3" also with the
gas system design it will shoot anything from 1OZ trap loads to 2 1/4 OZ turkey loads with
no operating problems or changes.
There may not be anything wrong with your shotgun except the shells that you use. so try
different brands and the problem may go away.
Just my 2 cents
