    What is the best way to load a Browning BPS on line?
    I'm looking to buy a trap gun and would like to know what Y'all think.
    Remington 870 or BPS ???

    You can jput the shell in the tube, and rack the action, or you can turn the gun upside down and just drop the shell in. You have to move the slide forward a half inch, and the fork will drop to the top of the gun(remember, it's upside down). Then close the gun and turn it rightside up.

    I found the second method very easy.

    The new BPS has a magazine cut off that makes it very easy to load on the line. just put the cut off on "s" and open the action. Place a shell directly into the chamber, the fork stays to the top of the receiver and out of the way. When it's your turn simply close the action and mount your gun.

    By the way, I think the BPS is the best new $650.00 trap gun out there. Mine points very well, doesn't beat me up and crushes targets.

    The way I used to load mine was, After firing the shot put a fresh shell into the magazine, pull back on the forend to eject the empty. When it's your turn just close the action and shoot. Not much different than an 870.
