I've ran every kind of load through mine with zero jams, shoots everything I've ever put in it from 2 3/4 to 3 1/2's and I shoot trap and sporting clays to geese and ducks.

also mine patterned Winchester 3in #2 drylok GREAT with the factory Mod choke. much more so than my 870 with the same load and any choke.

I have a 3" maxus and have shot it for 3 years now,zero jams.This year I have done a bit of vermin control in an animal feed holding yard and had to use steel,shot 183 birds in a little over 2 hours,first 150 shell were 32 gram 4 steel and the last 50 were 24gram 7 steel,cycled the lighter loads no problem after 150 heavy shells I was well impressed.I shoot gamebore mammoth steel 36gram 3 steel @1425fps through a duck commander full extended ported choke (I rarely shoot at ducks under 30 yards) and pattern is great although all patterns tested lead and steel were impressive,i also use grand passage choke.

hope this helps :smile:

PS I live in northern Ireland so can t comment on kent,winchester expert etc pattern as cant get em here.

I've had two Maxus shotguns for three years and lost count how many rounds through them. I have had zero problems and they cycle trap loads up to 3.5 shells no problem. I use briley extended chokes and get great patterns. I really like its light weight and soft recoil. The light weight is nice when upland hunting and soft recoil is nice when goose hunting. Versatile gun.
