Hope your FAIRs shoot better than this one:

At 40 yards, that left barrel would be almost a full pattern off in POI at 10 o'clock.

Why is the 28 gauge sxs fitted with 3" chambers?
Is someone making 3" shot shells for 20 gauge?

I had an Italian O/U 28 ga marked for 3in. In Europe there have been 3in 28ga, I do not know if they are still being made. I have seen pictures of the Ammo online, but never held one in my hand

There has also been 3in 16ga in the United States, I have a box.

That one is cross firing. Mine (.410) did, too, when first tested with 1/2 oz. loads. At a suggestion, from you if I'm not mistaken, I tried the WW 3/4 oz. factory loads. They regulated it perfectly. That suited me to a "T" because it is a hunting gun and I wanted to use the maximum loads in it, it being a .410.

I'll betcha' a heavier, slower load would do the same in the test gun in that article. Slower loads allows the payload to remain in the barrel a tiny bit longer, and the heavier load creates a bit more recoil, both of which helps in bringing the pattern back towards POA, when it is crossfiring.

Look again.

It's not cross firing.

But, I just noticed the test load is ONE OUNCE.

What the hell is wrong with those guys.

A standard 28ga load may bring the POI back where it belongs.

You're right, I was bassackwards. i mixed up POA with POI. My bad.

So right. Backing off to a 3/4 oz. load may make it perfect.

Mine was cross firing, tho'. Doesn't say much for their QC, does it? My Dickinson .410, at roughly $1000 less, was dead on.

3" 28ga. rounds are still being made. The ones I've had were 28 gram loads. Some of the Franchi 0/U 'International Skeet' guns in 28 ga. built on 12 ga. frames were chambered 3" and so marked. The 3" 28 ga. cartridges we've been getting recently are Fiocchi's. Cost was roughly $11/box. FWIW, Beretta has also chambered some 28's w/3" chambers. There are probably others. The Franchi's mentioned were made in the late 60's.

Many years back I was n a gunshop in the foothills of the mountains in Franklin County TN. While there a gentleman came in who had been /deer hunting up in the mountains. He had found a fired 3" 16 gauge shell on the ground & picked it up & brought it in to show. It was a Remington SP shell & marked on the side 3-1½-7½. Apparently Remington had put some out for testing but never marketed them.
