Default Winchester (Super X)

Just a warning, These Super X loads seem to always fail. We originally thought it was a my dads Browning Gold Hunter being finicky as auto loaders are, but it didn't work in my Browning BPS either. The big problem was jams every 15 rounds or so.

Now to my question, Every Browning we have put these through has rejected them (the others we tried were my Uncles A-5s). Is it only Brownings that reject these? Or are these rounds just cheap & junky?

I've never had any problems win ammo, especially in my shotgun, of course my 12ga is a pump-action.

Thats what I thought considering the BPS (Browning Pump Shotgun) is a pump.

Yeah I'm curious if it's a Browning thing. Any other Browning gun owners see any trouble with this ammo?

Thats all I shoot. Sounds like a bad batch. Or a shell length issue

I've heard that the Super X line isn't very good. I've shot a very similar load (Winchester Military) and they don't pattern well. I'm heading to the range today and I'm going to try 3 different Ranger OO loads so I'll report back, I'm expecting them to pattern much nicer than the other stuff.
