    Damn, glad you’re alright, bro. Was that a factory load or a reload?

    [Handload or what*?](https://youtu.be/n3Mn6V1IzHw) Looks like a 3″ Brenneke sticking out of the chamber.

    *not a handload so I’m not saying OP is dumb, but it’s a funny enough song to leave up.

    That’ll buff out! Wonder if they have some warning not to use high powered rounds.

    I don’t think these were chambered for 3″ shells. You putting a 3″ shell in this caused a bore obstruction. Any 3″ shells fired previously without any problem were basically you winning the lottery over and over. Glad you’re okay, but always check the chamber length on old shotguns. It’s always possible to chamber too long of a shell, not always possible to fire it successfully.

    Mossberg 185d. Shot with an overloaded slug. Bolt came very close to blowing out right into my lower right eye. No one was hurt, except a little cut on my arm.

    Are you sure it was overloaded or was the gun just not ment for that type of pressure?

    Damn!

    I remember seeing this posted when you got it and thinking it was cool. I have two bolt shotguns myself – any firearm that cheap gets me going (especially nowadays), not to mention one with wood that gets the kind of reaction a bolt action shotgun does. To be able to snap back with “it’s a Mossberg” is (was :() something I was jealous of.

    RIP or F in the chat, sorry to see this go so soon. Here’s hoping if you contact the company they do the right thing.

    Damn. I’m glad you’re you’re alright. If that shell had any more charge to it I think the results would have been catastrophic.
