Yes, to great effect.
This is a discussion on Can a Remmy Model 1100 use 2-3/4" magnum shots? within the Defensive Rifles & Shotgun Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; It's the tactical version TAC-2. It is chambered for 2-3/4". Not sure. Model 1100™ TAC...
It's the tactical version TAC-2. It is chambered for 2-3/4". Not sure.
Model 1100™ TAC
It should be able to handle any commercially loaded 2 3/4" shell. I think he meant they would be very effective. Any standard 2 3/4" load would be acceptable a HD distances.

It means that it would work and that it would work well.What do you mean by to great effect? Is that a smart comment you're making?
A 2 3/4 MAGNUM shell has a heavier shot load or a heavier poweder charge or both, than a standard shell. A standard hunting load might be 1 and 1/4 ounce of shot. A magnum load might be 1 and 5/8.
A hunting load might be 3 1/4 drams of powder. A magnum load would be 3 3/4 or the maximum loading of 4 drams which is as heavy as it gets in a 12 gage.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

"Is that a smart comment you're making?"
Not at all. I love duck hunting. Over the years I've seen several Remington Model 1100 shotguns in the hands of hunting companions, used with the heavy 2 3/4-inch shells. We used to call them "baby magnums." I've always thought a 3-inch magnum 12 gauge shell wasn't notably better. They were effective on ducks. The 1100s always work with them.
Baby Magnum Buckshot 2 3/4"
00 = 12 pellets
#1 B = 20 pellets
3" Mag Buckshot
00 = 15 Pellets
#1 B = 24 Pellets
The baby magnums will work great out of the 1100 and give a good payload increase over the standard 2 3/4" loads.
If for some reason you want to stay with standard non magnum loads the 0 buck has 12 pellets and is .32 caliber instead of .33 for the 00. Very good load.

Ok, thank you! I'll use these 2-3/4"magnums I bought the other day. Thanks again.
