Reloading U/O

Print Post  
I do some clay shooting with different groups of people I know, always use a semi and pump action. I have decided that it is probably easier to have U/O's.
This is for safety and ease of loading.
It is always hard to tell how many shots are left in a semi, or pump.

My thoughts, so let me know if I am on the right track as I have never even used an U/O.

1. U/O can be broken open so it is safe for all to see.

2. Easy to reload and know how many shots are in.

Question ???

When you fire one shot and open it, do both shells eject, what do you do, catch them or search around on the ground for unspent round.

Any other comments on logistics or problems I may run into would be greatly appreciated.

depends on how gun is set up as to how shells come out...some present both to be removed,some throw them across your shoulder with some force,some chuck out only fired shells.
as to how many shots are left in semi or pump....if you only put in two.....just saying like Wink
you shouldnt have any problems in function or logistics.
SOME u/o s can be a right tart to remove bottom shell in a tight space as barrels hold slightly up /not fully open and the only issue I had with my first one was VERY ocasionally a rim would drop behind bottom ejector...not a major problem but was a pain at the time....never seen it on another gun,the rusky Ive used for some time now is a solid workhorse that just wont die.

Thanks for that MD, ones that just throw empties sounds good.
I hear what you are saying just putting in two shots, and I do do that I was just wondering if I could do it better.

my pump came with a hunk of plastic rod inside the coil spring......in effect it pinned the shotgun to 2 shot.

I got an U/O I love it, it works exactly the way I thought it would.  And those electors only ejecting the spent shell is just a dream. Thanks MD.
Roll on opening day had a clay shoot with my neighbor buddy that I shoot with. Was looking promising, will be a bit of a race on those sneaky singles that flop in. Don't think I will have it all my way like other years. He was fast on the Clay's.
