    I just bought a 1100 Trap-T and shot it for the 1st time today.
    The shells were AA Light Target loads.
    After looking at the hulls I noticed the brass caps were slightley beveled uniformly around the out-side edge.
    Is this something I should be concerned about?

    My previous trap gun was a TM-1, I never noticed anything of this type with it.

    You mean on the leading edge of the rim?

    The beveling is all around the the out-side edge of the brass around the primer
    of the hull.

    I have seen this on some hulls. There was a bevel all the way around the edge of the base. Don't remember if the guy had a 1100 or something else.

    Are the shells reloads; if so it may be due to your reloader.

    OK, Process of elimination. Check a shell before you fire it. Make sure it doesn't look that way before it goes in the gun. Put the shell in the gun and close the bolt. Remove the unfired shell and see if there is any change in appearance. Put the shell in the gun and fire the shell. See what it looks like after firing. Try a different brand of shell and see if it still does the same thing. Try your shells in a different gun, preverably another 1100. What happens to the shell. If you narrow it down to just your gun and just your AA shells, then start swapping parts. Is the bolt locking up into the barrel when it goes into battery. Is the chamber clean? Try using a different barrel. Still a problem? Try using a different bolt. Does the extractor move freely? Does it engage the barrel notch? Is the recoil spring weak? Is the gun assembled correctly? The good thing is that there are bunches of 1100s out there to compare with. Check with local 1100 experts at the club. The gun type has been around for ages and there are people that should be able to look at things and give you a clue, if you have a problem or not. Good luck. Mark

    Something is wrong if you have a sore shoulder after shooting an 1100. That is what is causing the problem with the shells. HMB
