I bought some 100 round box of low brass target / birdshot 1200 FPS for use in this old shotgun.
Yes, I am aware of the notice that Marlin made regarding the 1898 exposed hammer shotgun and its derivatives, and I firmly believe that was a “CYA” move to satisfy the lawyers at Marlin.
I believe these shotguns are just as noteworthy and reliable as the Winchester 1897 shotguns.
At least until I get a bolt in my eye, but still.
