    I am shooting 28 gauge, old style AA and STS reloads in a Remington 1100 sporting and am having an occassional problem with ejection and also with hull sticking in chamber. Some of these shells have been reloaded 5 times on a MEC 9000G. Do I need to tighten down on the collet? Anyone else having this problem? Thanks for your input. Johnny Whidden

    What diameter are you resizing the hulls to? What does the chamber look like (rough or smooth)? How often are you cleaning the chamber and gun?

    I have a 28 ga 1100 sporting and have ejection issues with the old cf WIN AA hulls as well. The ejector rips the brass, solution has been to use Remington sts or the new win AAHS hulls. No problem with either of those.

    Skeet man, what diameter do I need to resize to, I have been shooting the hulls in a model 32 barrel set which is known to have large chambers, thanks

    .626 -.009 (so .626 to .617) is SAAMI spec. I'd keep tightening the collet little by little until you reach the low end, and if the problem hasn't stopped by that point, your issue lies elsewhere.

    Use the 1100 barrel as a gauge, and set your collet sizer so the loaded shell drops into the chamber by gravity.

    28 no problem, 410 can not be shot in my 1100 or 11-48 unless I run them through as old style re-sizer.

    I HAD THAT ISSUE WITH AN OLD 1100 SKEET. TOOK A WOOD DOWEL AND WRAPPED SHOTCHBRITE ON IT WITH SOME POLISHING COMPOUND. RAN IT THROUGH THE CHAMBER TO REMOVE THE ROUGH SURFACE AND OPEN IT UP A THOUSANTH OR SO. ALSO RAN IT THROUGH THE FORCING CONE TO SMOOTH AND POLISH IT. NEVER HAD AN ISSUE AFTER THAT. FYI 1100 28'S HAVE A WEAK EJECTER CLAW WHICH WILL SNAP ON YOU PREMATURELY IF YOUR CHAMBER IS TIGHT. A SPARE IS A GOOD THING TO KEEP IN YOUR CASE WITH THE SPARE O RING.

    Be sure you are cleaning well under the ejector claw. A dirty one will pull the hull out due to the pressure of the bolt slamming forward, but may not release when overly fouled.

    Pipe cleaners diped in solvent work well here, then follow up with a dry one.


    Good Luck
