What is the best type buckshots to use in a Remington 1100 semiautomatic?
You need to specify what you will be shooting and what gauge 1100 you have with what chokes??? If you are doing Clay sports, which one? Skeet? Trap? Sporting Clays? (all would have different answers) Hunting? What species? Duck/Geese not only need different loads, but require steel or non-tox shot as well. Upland birds? Turkey? Deer? (some states do not allow Buckshot, but only rifled slugs) Generally the best shot to use depends on your game and the choke you choose for that sport. i have a 1100 and use the long barrel for deer, i use 4 buck, and its seems like that holds the best pattern in any situation.
The value of any firearm is based on exact MAKE, MODEL, and CONDITION. There are dozens of different version of the Model 1100. Values can range from about $250 to $700 for different versions in different conditions. You best bet is to take the (unloaded) gun to a local gun shop or gun show for a hands-on assessment.
I am not sure what your question is but I have a Remington 1100 and a 11-87. I believe the 11-87 took the place of the 1100 which was discontinued. I owned a sporting goods store starting in 1991 and 11-87 was a new shotgun back then. People wanted to get rid of there 1100 quite often because it would jam often when not cleaned. I personally love mine but you must clean it often…
Value is strictly dependent on the current condition of your said shotgun and which gauge it is. With that in mind, its value could be anywhere from $180.00 to around $1,200.00 for a "Special Addition". Your best bet would be to bring it to a gunshow and ask some of the folks attending tables there, what the "replacement cost" would be should this shotgun be stolen or destroyed in a fire.
