    Nah it's definitely shorter than 16 cos that's only a 4 shot mag tube. Pretty sure it's a 12.5. Surprisingly doesn't recoil that hard though even with slugs.

    Unfortunately Remington don't sell spare barrels for left-hand 870 shotguns. You might snag a secondhand one in Buy Sell Swap.

    Ah don't they? Might sell this one on then if it's going to be such a pain to get a barrel for.

    Sorry guys, no photo's today but a quick report, a morning hunt that if I had another box of ammo would have gone well into the afternoon.
    Cold and dead still, just perfect, rabbits everywhere, took a box of 17HMR, 47 shot.
    ive been watching a lot of YouTube clips as I want to keep improving my shooting, really focused on body position today...made a difference.
    I could have stayed out all day shooting, so much for the new virus.

    If that was a box of 50 you would have to be happy with those sats?

    yeah was ok as I took some shots that from a position or distance that was marginal.
    Closest shot 30 mtrs - longest 205mtrs - misses further out at 240 mtrs and a lot of very steep up hill shooting.
    Had a part box of 8 rounds before the box of 50.
    Pretty happy but always room to improve.

    What scope do you use with your .17 HMR Viper?

    New PB with the 22lr subs for me this morning, nailed two pest birds at 142 yards, 11.5 moa dialed up from a 70 yard zero.

    Quite amaising how well those CCI HP subs kill at that range.

    @Flyblown, I use a Nikko Stirling Nighteater that I got off another forum member. Good scopes for the money, mine has the LRX recticle which is nice and fine and comes with the bonus of being one of the recticles on the free ballistic app Strelok.
    It's the 3rd one I have had over the yrs and they all have being good , I really crank it up over 10x power.
