We performed a patterning test of our 1100 SBS at 7, 18, and 25 yards. At the same time we patterned a Remington 870 SBS with a 14" barrel as it came from a well known shop for comparison. The best patterns from all the guns with 00 Buckshot came from Winchester Ranger 12GA. 2 3/4" Low Recoil 00 Buckshot. Our 1100 SBS conversion ran everything we put through it, from #8 Target Loads to Low Recoil Buckshot and Slug to full power Buckshot and slugs.
Both the above patterns were fired at 18 yards with Winchester Ranger 2 3/4 Low Recoil 00 Buckshot. The first one was with an 870 SBS with a 14 inch barrel from another well known shop. The picture on the right is the pattern from our 1100 14 inch SBS with a modified Remchoke installed.
The pattern on the left was shot at 7 yards with our 1100 SBS with a modified Remchoke. The center pattern was shot at 25 yards with our 1100 SBS with a modified Remchoke. The right pattern was shot at 25 yards with our 1100 SBS with a Full Remchoke.
