Anyone know if these will work (fit), or cycle in an IWI TS-12 semi-auto shotgun?
Concerned about the size, but have not tried them yet.

70mm "Tornado Slug" 2-1/2" shell

Lambro #00 Buck (marked 2-3/4" but actually measures only 2-1/4") ??

Possibly showing my ignorance?
Is the nominal shell length supposed to include the unfolded flaps that keep the pellets (slug), wad and gunpowder inside?

Ultimately, I guess I'll need to hit the gun range to verify these will shoot / cycle.
Just wondering out loud here...

Thanks

Yes, the stated chamber length of shotgun shells includes the full length of the shell after it's been fired.

It’s difficult to find tried and true ammo these days. You might just have to buy what’s available and run it.

I know, and since the TS-12 is a semi-auto shotgun, we have the additional concern of cycling, in addition to "fit and chambering" issues.
There's a YouTube video on the TS-12 where some brands of ammo fail to eject properly.
The guy runs several boxes (all different types and brands) and a couple of them just won't work.
That is, until later on in the video, and then they work fine. (Reason not known).
Maybe a break-in period for the gun, or after he lightly lubricated the magazines?...

I just don't want to get to Bob's class and start having ammo issues.
Wishing now I had kept that Shockwave I gave to my brother. :)

I might hit the range today (Boca?) to put "first shells" through the TS-12.
I got several boxes of slugs recently, so I can visit an indoor range. Weather is crappy today, last I looked.
Could do West Palm, if anyone wants to meet up. Nothing set in stone - schedule wise today (or even tomorrow.)

Have too many errands to do today so, I’m out of a range trip.

I’ll try and snag up an extra pump shotgun in case someone’s fails OT has too much trouble.
