    Help ; Benelli super black eagle 2 , i got this gun to hunt with ,the lit. says 2 3/4 -- 3 1/2 amo. took it to the range for a try . it shoots trap loads and ejects them 1145 fps but it wouldnt feed another shell into the chamber! I like the gun , I want to be able to shoot dove and quail , it doesnt seem to like thoes type of loads. Any advice other than shoot hi base loads or got another gun ?

    They need oil and breaking in.try like 4 boxes of 3 dram loads to loosen up things.It should work with 1oz estates factory@ 1180fps.
    The lightest I can go with my 1993 legacy is 7/8oz@1300fps.
    Some use the trick of greasing up the breech bolt shaft,along with a little polishing,to get lighter loads to work.There is a replacement inertia spring available I think also.
