For Birdshot, I had cycling problems with light loads - every 3 shots or so, the gun failed to cycle. Very frustrating in a tactical training situation. I went to Winchester 2 3/4", 3 3/4 Dr Eq, 1 1/4 oz., 7 1/2 lead shot and it has cycled just fine, with no problems at all. I have had no issues with any 00 Buck or slugs. Good luck, stay safe.

Thanks Tacman. I'll go pick some up this week and try them out.... Nothing like that cold bblood feeling with my new 1014 and it fails to cycle " cheap" ammo... Thanks. :cool:

BTW, I reviewed some literature on the M4 and it stated that the gun was produced to cycle light loads (rubber bullets, etc) MANUALLY, so the constraints about aout cycle still exist - you need to have enough "punch" to cycle the gun. How was your weekend shooting? I took mine out and shot slugs and 00 Buck and was getting very tight slug groups (most shots touched each other) at 15-50 yds. and nice patterns on the buckshot. Nice feeling. Hope you experienced the same... Stay safe. Tacman
