I'm new here, so I don't mind your question. I can usually get 18-20 in skeet with my 870 after the first warm up round. Are you set on an auto-loader? If not then go over/under. Can't get much simpler to clean and you don't have to chase empty shells. I got a citori a couple years ago and since then the 870 hasn't seen much use. You might as well get one now because if you keep up with sporting clays and skeet you're gonna get an itch for one later.
