Anyone else heard of cutting 1/4” of the recoil spring at a time until you get inertia guns to cycle lighter loads reliably? I was told by a shooter that claims To have done this, taking 1/2” off of his spring and says it works great now with all loads.
Any out there that have tried this?

Sounds like that would be hard on the receiver when you shot higher power loads. Also I would think if it was that easy the factory would make the springs shorter then everybody could shoot very light loads.

That was my first thought. He hasn’t had any issues but the bolt slamming against the back of the receiver could eventually crack it.

Pshaw.
Then he'll just send it in to the mfr with a blistering letter screaming about the cracked receiver and omit all details about the cut recoil springs........

I know of at least 2 friends that have done this to get their 3/4 oz./1150 fps loads to cycle in a 12 gauge. But, its the only thing they shoot in that gun.

I have both of the Wolfe heavy and light recoil springs for a Benelli M1 90 twenty gauge. I swap them for clays vs hunting loads. The heavy spring is a about an inch and a half longer than the light spring. So this might well work but springs are not that expensive.

His gun is a Benelli. I’m also having a problem with my inertia A5 Browning in 12 ga cycling 1 oz.loads.

He says “ inertia A5, so I don’t think he means the older Auto 5
