Break-action shotguns have long-been considered the best tool for upland hunters and clay shooters for the ability to customize shot type and spread, their refined appearance, and their reliability. Mossberg is pleased to introduce an extensive line of field and sporting over-and-under (O/U) shotguns: the Mossberg International Silver Reserve Field and Mossberg International Gold Reserve Sporting Series of shotguns. These well-appointed, double guns are available in 12, 20, 28-gauge and 410 bore in the Silver Reserve series along with a 20-gauge Youth gun. The Gold Reserve series is available in 12 and 20-gauge and 410 bore. All Reserve Series shotguns feature chrome-lined bores and chambers and dual-locking lugs.


Silver Reserve Field Series

These affordable O/U shotguns have black walnut stocks with satin finish; handsome cut-checkering on the grip and forend; 14-inch length-of-pull (LOP) and complementing matte bluefinished, vent rib barrels (10mm wide). Other standard features include shell extractors; 28-inch (12 gauge) or 26-inch (20 gauge, 28 gauge and 410 bore) barrel lengths, topped with a front bead sight; Field Set of 5 flush choke tubes (Cylinder, Improved Cylinder, Modified, Improved Modified and Full); satin-finished silver receiver with engraved Mossberg logo; and tang-mounted safety and barrel selector.

An optional 12-gauge Field version features a durable black synthetic stock with matte blue receiver and barrels (28-inch) and is equipped with a fiber optic front sight; making this break-action ideal for small game or turkey hunting. For younger shooters or to accommodate adults requiring a shorter length-of-pull, the 20-gauge Field Youth O/U features a 13.25-inch LOP. MSRP: $692 (Black Walnut Stock) and $636 (Black Synthetic Stock)

Gold Reserve Sporting Series

With features traditionally reserved for high-end double guns, the Gold Reserve O/U shotguns have hand-selected black walnut stocks; cut-checkering on the grip and forend; and polished-blue barrel finish. These competition-ready guns are equipped with 28 or 30-inch vent rib barrels (10mm wide); shell ejectors; front bead sight; and extended and checkered Sport Set of 5 choke tubes (Skeet, Improved Cylinder, Modified, Improved Modified and Full). Further enhancing the Gold Reserve series are polished silver receivers with decorative accents including jeweling of the action, rich scrolling engraved on the safety/barrel selector and action release and a distinctive 24kt gold inlay on the underside of the receiver.

In addition to the standard Gold Reserve Sporting models, two optional 12-gauge versions are available. The Gold Reserve Black Label sports a 30-inch, polished-blue barrel with bead sight and complementing polished blue receiver featuring engraved scrolling and gold inlay. The Gold Reserve Super Sport is designed for maximum shooting comfort with its adjustable stock for cast, comb height and LOP (13 to 15 inches); 30-inch high vent rib barrel (12mm tall x 10mm wide) equipped with a fiber optic front sight; and polished silver receiver with gold inlay and scrolling. MSRP: $983 (Sporting and Black Label) and $1,221 (Super Sport)

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

The .300 Blackout cartridge was developed to provide greater effectiveness than a 9mm at short and medium ranges when fired from a short-barreled suppressed firearm. Just because the cartridge wasn't designed to go long doesn't mean Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand won't take it there, using a large-format pistol, no less. Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”
