    We used shotguns on the Japs because they were not convention signers, we used shotguns in Europa, but for guard duty by MP's.

    A standard ball gun will not reliably feed other than ball reliably, a throating job is needed along with modified magazines.

    I have done hundreds over the decades, no matter how well they are done, some will fail to feed at some point.

    My work was to make them feed semi wadcutters, a lot harder to do than HP rounds.
    We used shotguns in Vietnam, too. Mainly Stevens 67's.
    Plastic shotshells had not been invented yet, and paper hulls would swell badly from the jungle humidity, so the Army used brass shells.

    Actually, there's not too much I can't get done with just three firearms.
    A 45 Automatic firing USGI Hard Ball, a 22LR rifle, and a 30-30 lever action firing 150 grain jacketed soft points.

    Everything after that is just gravy on the meat and potatoes.

    The army had to relearn several times on those shells, first with the Philippine insurrection, then WW1,

    had the same problem again during the banana wars.

    Then WW2 came along and it had to be relearned, Korea was next,

    then back in the jungles of Central America for another repeat, finally Nam.

    The biggest cause of the problem was army did not want to pay for all brass shells, opting for the paper instead every time.

    Remington came out with the plastic ones around 1960 IRRC.

    During that span of history, the only ones who regularly got all brass shells were the federal prisons,

    reason was of the loading and unloading every shift.

    I have a few boxes of issue all brass shells,

    there were a huge amount of them on the market in the late 50's and early 60's, Korean war surplus.

    My truck gun at this point in time is a Stevens 67E. Some people may think they are not as good as Remington or Mossberg, but I'll bet my life on this one.

    They have out of stock bullets and the cases they have are for a converted center fire. I have not fire it in 40 years or so

    Most match grade guns have throating done.

    The Wilson-Rogers mags have the correct lip configuration to feed ball, HP, and WC match ammo properly, those are all that I use.
    I use Wilson mags also.

    Agreed. I have two of their 12 ga single shots, one from the 1930's.
    And a bolt action, 5 shot, 22LR farm rifle.

    Stevens is still around, owned by Savage Arms.
