I just purchase a new Charles Daly Maxi Mag semi-auto shotgun and I`m having trouble finding 2 3/4 shells it will cycle. I`m wondering if it will perform better when it is broke in better. I don`t expect it to cycle 7/8 oz. but it should cycle 3 1/4 1 1/8 shouldn`t it? Can someone that is familar with this gun help me out.

The best way to find out is to try them all.
The Owner's Manual should tell you what ammo the gun is designed to function with. Be sure to give a new gun a good cleaning to remove the grease from the action and the gas system. Then lubricate all moving parts with a high quality gun oil such as Breakfree CLP or Rem Oil.
I have one also a year old. It will cycle 1oz loads to the heavyest 3.5.
Buy 2 boxes of 1 9/16oz 3.5s one box of 1 7/8 3" and invite some Buds over and burn threw them.
Tear the gun down and give it a good cleaning and lube job.
You then should be able to cycle 1 1/4oz with no problem with further break in you will be able to go lighter.
Hope you have better luck with your gun than I have had with mine. It is with out a dought fine shooting gun. But had to send mine back twice within a year.
I parked it and bought a SX2.

Good Luck.

Thanks for the replies! I`ve had alot of people look at the gun and all of them say that it needs breaking in. I haven`t shot any 3.5s in it yet and it`s getting better with me just using 3.25 dram with 1 1/8 shot . I feeling better about the gun.
