I noticed that 3 1/2” shells jammed in my Beretta 391 Xtrema and A-400 Xtreme in cold weather.
The guns were slightly dirty, but not very much.
Other shells cycled fine.
Anyone else have this problem??

3 1/2" Kent Fasteel with 1 3/8 oz. BB @ 1550 is my go to load for specklebelly geese. They work just fine in my Super X2, but it doesn't often get too cold down here. How cold are you talking about, and how do you oil your Barettas?

Temps in the 20s.
Guns were quite clean. Other brand shells worked fine.
Maybe some sand in the chamber due to high winds?? Shell would not fully chamber.
Guns were lightly lubed, as I’ve done for 30 years.
I think it was shell related.

Sorry to hear that fellas, because they're good shells. But, as I'm sure you both know, there are a lot of other good shells available.
