Hey all I did the search a few times and got no results so if this is a repeat thread I apologize. I am buying my Beretta A300 today and I have read a lot of reviews about people having horrible problems with the cycling and to jamming on the 2 3/4 shells but have seen nothing about people using the 3 inch shells instead. Anyone recommend a good way to break in this gun to a new gun owner?

Thanks in advance.

I have an A391, and when I bought mine, I had the same concern. I went to the trap and skeet range, and shot 100 rounds. However, rather than use the light 2 3/4 stuff I would normally shoot, I fired 3 inch shells. I remember reading some Beretta  material that said the first 100 rounds could have a jam, as the gas system and spring needs to "sit", and that the 2 3/4 don't have the kick to make it happen. Sort of along the same concept as your engine breaking in over the first 1,000 miles (except you want to baby it). Just keep making sure that the end cap remains tight- they can loosen while shooting excessive rounds. I have had zero issues with mine, and we are going on to the fourth season.

I never had any problems with any size load out of my Urika 2.

dont go spend an arm and leg on 3 inch shells you dont need to. Just because a shell is 2 3/4" doesnt mean its going to be less than a 3 inch. Pay attention to your fps or mainly the dram eq. if your shooting 1 oz 2 3/4 dram or even 3 dram then yes you might have some issues because yes its a light load. we shell rio texas game loads down here which have a really have a heaving dram a.k.a amount of powder so thats what you need to focus on. You can normally find this stuff if you pay attention without having to pay the "high brass" price tag.
