    Remington Nitro Magnum's 'little brother' in length 2 3/4 inch (70 mm)
    Shotgunpattern.net took a few test shots of Remington Nitro Magnum in length 2 3/4 inches / 70 mm (which is normally sold in 3 inches magnum). The recoild was noticeable according to my shoulder... :=)
    We tested shots No. 6 (2,7 mm) and No. 4 (3,2 mm). The 'little brother' was giving pretty good patterns, especially in shot No. 6 (see patterns #1600 and #1602)
