the problem stinks....... not ur gun.
take off the recoil pad and try a tighter choke.also, if u can find the rem 2 3/4 cheapo loads with the high brass and 6pt crimp, u shouldnt have any more trouble. and they are still cheap.
estate high brass loads arent too expensive either if u can get em in bulk
also since ur wanting real hunting practice the faster ones are a little closer to shooting fast steel loads.
