New shotgun advice.

I just bought a Mossberg 930 SPX, and after reading the owners manual, I don't see anything on how to break it in. Does any one have any idea if there is a break in to it, or do I just take it out and play. This is my first shotgun. Thanks for any help.

Clean the action
Lube the action
Cycle rounds through the action (loaded round in, empty hull out)

shoot it until it gets hot, reload, shoot it some more, repeat until all ammunition has been expended. Buy more ammunition, continue until children starve, marriage fails and front sight comes loose (not necessarily in that order).

I always figure (250) two hundred fifty rounds for break in.

You don't need to break in a shotgun--handgun, rifle barrels yes, smoothbores, no.

I have taken many brand new, never fired guns to the range and shot 3 x 100 round of skeet and/or sporting clays with them--semis, O/U and SxS.

Just clean and oil the gun when you first get it, make sure it cycles/ejects and that's it.

Again thanks guys. I took it to the range, but was only allowed to shoot slugs. I'm happy, Zombies beware.

At the range I went to, I was only allowed to use slugs, so I used 3 boxes, 15 rds, and at 20yrds, the went in a very close group. Now I have to get more to use. But Like I said before, Zombies beware.

Mossberg is a great gun bet buy for the money IMHO . I have owned several starting with a few 500s I now own a 835 I turkey hunt with . Using 3 1/2 inch #4 I can roll a bowling pin over at 50 yards great gun wouldn't trade it for a new car .
