shotgun shooting

Hi Shootforum,
Probably been asked and answered before, but here goes.

I am just about to buy a Browning 725 and have a query. I always use cartridges with felt wads because I don't want to litter the fields with plastic.

Will the back bored 725 affect my cartridges and the way they fit? I can't see Browning making a gun that will not handle cartridges with plastic wads but I need some reassurance before I buy.

Thanks for that, and best wishes,

Yep, a simple answer to your question is dont worry about It.

May i recommend the Gamebore range of cartridges. Ive shot many if not most makes off cartridges and nothing compares to Gamebore.

The only 16 bore I had was a combined shotgun and rifle made in Germany. I believe the rifle was Winchester 25.35. For a short while I had a Lefaucheux pinfire in 16 but soon squibbed off the cartridges and sold it to the local gunshop. It was hanging on the wall of the shop until they went out of business. I should have sold it privately because they make good money.
