A 1/2" drill turns very slowly reducing the risk of something going wrong. Dollar tree sells steel wool that is in tube shaped roll that is perfect for polishing the cylinder on a shotgun.
It wasn't the shell that was stuck the extractor and the rest of the bolt in this gunn is two pieces and the extractor slides back and forth anD rotates when moving back. So when I shot it rotated and was binding up. There for preventing me from cycling the gun.

Some folks cleans n service a gun prior to range use. I have never really had an issue w my 870 functioning but after pattern testing, I did take it apart and the gun was as dry as a bone.

You can polish bolt group, rails etc., and this will help the gun cycle. Armorers have done the steel wool trick to polish chambers but the chamber is not always the culprit.

Yet, some guns & people need a break in period.

Savage Rifles have a good reputation for accuracy. I don't know about their shotguns but in general, light loads for tgt practice is a good idea. No reason to work on bad habits - they tend to multiply on their own. Most attribute this phenomenon w Murphy's Law.

Not all pumps are created equal - some people have them so smooth, the recoil does half the work; all they have to do is push slide fwd. (Modern guns - no slam fire - Trench Broom)

The old savage/stevens shotguns were good shooters. I borrow a Savage pump from a friend when I visit. The old savage doesn't have a rotating bolt. If I had to compare it to anything I have shot it would be an Ithaca. My brother has a Stevens 20 ga SxS that is older than he is. The gun has never been in the shop as far as I know.
