My understanding of the gas system in the V3 is that 4 of 8 ports are covered when using 3" shells, thus cutting down the amount of gas that enters the system. Does the use of 2-3/4" baby magnums, e.g., 1-1/2 oz of shot at 1300 fps stress the system? I ask because I have used a lot of those in my 1100 and wonder if it's a good practice in the V3.

2 3/4" magnums are reputedly a problem in the Versaport system equipped Versamax.

Remington did add some pressure relief provisions to the V3's version of Versaport (pop-off valves in the synthetic stocked guns and vent tubes in the walnut). Nevertheless, I haven't any intention of running any heavy 2 3/4" ammo (magnums, slugs, buckshot, etc) in my V3's. They have 3" chambers, so I figure the sensible thing to do is use 3" shells when I want magnum performance.

Yep, I decided that if I was going to run anything " hot " in my V3, it`d be 3". In all likelihood I`ll only be shooting 2 3/4 " target and dove loads, though.

Do you mean, will it break it? No, it won't, but using 3 inch shells is smarter as it is using the VP system.

So what happens when.you run hot 3" loads though it? What about the tactical version? Is that a different gas system? Because tactical shotguns generally run heavy loads

Less gas enters the gas block.

What about the tactical guns? Because a lot of tactical loads are 2 3/4 heavy loads do those have problems? I plan on converting my V3 to a tactical gun and I dont plan on running 3" shells. If it can' handle the loads I will just convert my 930 to a tactical.

Federal - F127 Buckshot 9 pellet - 00 1.11 oz.
Federal - F127 Buckshot 27 pellet - 4 1.27 oz.

Buckshot loads are not particularly heavy loads.

That load is only 8 pellets, making it less than a 1 oz. payload: 0.982857 oz. You're looking for problems that don't exist.
