I recently purchased a Stoeger coach gun, first shotgun I have owned.
One thing that I liked about the break open shotgun was the simplicity of the mechanism, it looked easy to clean and reliable.
I tried it out last week, with 5 shells, everything was fine. This week I got some low recoil buckshot shells:
They have a steel base. These shells stuck in the chamber after firing. The extractor on the gun could not move them. I took the gun apart, and when I got home I knocked the shells out with a wooden dowel.
I did not clean the gun after the first firing of 5 shells. I am going to clean everything today.
What do you guys think? Bad ammo? Dirty gun?
