Mossberg 500 Thunder Ranch
New member here, I apologize if this question is repetitious for the more experienced hands.

I just got a new Mossberg 500 Thunder Ranch (internet order, delivered to my FFL). Using 2 3/4" shells, it is supposed to take 5 rounds in the tube. I can only get 2 rounds to load.

Suggestions or help? I appreciate the assistance.

There is probably a plug in the gun, restricts rounds for hunting.

Search plug removal Mossberg 500 on youtube there are lots of videos showing how to remove it.

Sounds right.

All you have to do is unload the gun & remove the barrel. Turn the magazine tube down and shake the gun. A wood dowel with two O-rings on it will fall out. It is really just that easy! Put the plug up somewhere were you can find it for hunting. Otherwise you will be whittling on a pencil if you need to plug the gun.

Thanks to all of you; but, in particular, John_Deere. The dowel is out - done and done.

You guys were quick and helpful.

Thank you
