H&R 1871 Pardner Pump – Chambered Shell Changeout
How to get one shell load type out of the chamber and quickly get another shell load type in the chamber with out wasting any precious shell capacity from the magazine tube.
Learn to do this quickly and efficiently.
Useful skill when hunting to change load types for different game. Slugs to birdshot for example.
Very useful in a tactical situation to change from buckshot to a slug load.
Shell quantity is very limited in a shotgun. Keep all the shell capacity in the magazine tube that you can.
This method also works on Remington 870 shotguns and their variants that utilize staggered interrupters.
Why do it this way?
If you drive the forend all the way back and do not re set the interrupter a second shell will be on the lifter and you will need to dump it out the ejection port before you drop in your “new” load type. This wastes a shell from your magazine tube.
Practice the illustrated method.
Learn to do this smoothly without thinking.
Special note: Practice this with inert shells or snap caps.
