Can a 3 inch magnum chamber shoot 2 3 4 shells?
2 3/4 is fine in a 3 inch chamber… As are 2 1/2 inch shells… And 2 9/16 inch shells, etc… Just do not chamber and fire a shell longer than 3 inches as pressures may spike rather quickly and higher than the gun can take…
How many shells does a Remington hold?

Can a Remington 1100 eject 2 3 4 shells?
No announcement yet. i have a remington 1100 3 inch magnum and it wont eject 2 3/4 shells right. if i put on a barrel with a 2 3/4 inch chamber will it ejct them right? I’d run some 3 inch shells thru it and see what happens. Your either not getting enough gas thru to operate the bolt or there is something gummed up or broken in the receiver.
Can a 1100 Mag be used with 2 3 / 4 shells?
I told you that the 1100 mag was a dedicated 3″ gun and would not function reliably with 2 3/4″ shells because of the single gas port in the barrel ring, whereas the 2 3/4″ barrels had two gas ports. Put a 2 3/4″ barrel on the gun and it will work.
Why does my 1100 3 ” mag not eject?
Your 1100 3″ mag has a single gas port. Usually, fouling in the port is the cause of failure to eject lower power loads. Clean with a pipe cleaner and Hoppes #9. If this does not solve the problem, a trip to the gunsmith to slightly enlarge your single port will solve it.
