When the a303 3" first came on mkt. I bought a 26" barreled one. Shims, Mobil chokes and shot down to 1 1/8 oz. lds. perfectly as well as 3" waterfowl lds. Did a lot of quail hunting back then and used that gun for both that & waterfowl. Kept it for several years but sadly swapped it towards a Weatherby Grd. 2 over/under I just had to have. Well the o/u is long gone but been kickin myself for years for trading off that A303. They were nice guns then but are bringing stupid prices now when they can be found.
