We got one yesterday with that exact combo. My son Dalton is 14 and we got to enjoy Arkansas youth season over the weekend.

Thanks BennieGobler on the shims. I have done that with a Xtrema 2 I owned. Taylorjones20 have him get with bobby at JEBS chokes. They will bend a barrel if I would have known that I would have never got rid of Xtrema 2. Lord knows I took a loss on that gun and really liked how it shoulder. If my a400 don't straighten up with shims or chokes I will send mine there.

     Been hunting with the Xtrema 1 and 2 for allot of years. The POA/ POI is absolutely dead on with all of the factory chokes in the gun. We tested both guns extensively. When I would choke the gun with .660-.670 turkey chokes it would shoot low left. Tested 5-6 turkey chokes including Kicks, Pure Gold, Rhino (Quality Chokes). Both xtrema's required adjustable sights (tru-glo) and it wasn't a major deal to sight in. The guns will turn 300+ with Hevi 7's and 333 is the best pattern to date. I almost got rid of the first gun until a gunsmith told me to test all the factory chokes first and see if it was a barrel problem. Turkey killing machines.
     Same thing with both my 870 21" and winchester LB's. They both shoot high left with the 3" shells. Tru glo sights on one and Bushnell Trophy on the other. Easy sight in.
    Of all the turkey guns I have had over the last 25 years only two have held POA/POI after putting turkey chokes and high powered turkey loads through them. Beretta Urika/ Pure Gold .670 and Remington 870sm/ Ventilator .655. These guns have 26-28" bbl's.

This is a Beretta A400. Forcercon1 I have a 660 coming from Jebs and just ordered a IC 670. If those don't pattern to the right you are on to something. I bought an xtrema  2 and really got frustrated with it shooting low and left. Put sights on it but never got over it being that bad and that expensive. Sold it to a duck hunter cheap. It did shoot federal steel better but still low and left. Rick

I feel like we had the same experience on the xtrema 2
