    Has anyone tried these Aguila shotgun shells? How did they cycle in your weapon? was the recoil significantly less? Did you pattern shot? I think they make them in 7 shot, slugs, and buck; the buck has 11 pellets. How many rounds will fit in a standard magazine tube? The only guns that I have heard that will reliably cycle them with no modifications are the 1300 winchester and the 1897 Winchester.

    Taken from their site. "[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]after some testing we realized that the WINCHESTER™ 1300 series cycle MINISHELLS flawlessly (12 rds in an 18" bbl "Defender"); MOSSBERGS™ and REMINGTONS™ needed a minor modification in their elevators to produce similar results."

    But I haven't ever tried them myself. 12 rounds in a short barreled shotty is impressive.
