    There does exist a rubber plug to fill that gap. There were vender( ar 15 platform) that did carry them and possibly still do .
    Hot glue could be used as a filler

    150gr SST's will be doing appr 2500fps I believe they will work fine in these short guns.

    I'm loading 125gr Nosler Ballistic Tips that I had around and 125gr Accubonds.

    I found three boxes of 100 150gr jacketed round nose bullets on my shelf I've been thinking of giving them a try for deer hunting.

    They should open up very well on deer

    It will depend on your powder and the burn rate. I'm using D5744 (Accurate 5744 analogue) and my 147gr loads are 2420fps-ish. Using D4895 I couldn't get close to that.

    Look up handgun loads for 15" barreled Prohunter/Encores on Hodgdons site.

    The two best velocity powders for that barrel length are IMR3031 and IMR4064

    I have both of these powders I use IMR3031 for my 125gr @ 2720fps loads

    Ill be specific to avoid any witty banter. Using Hornady Brass Federal 210m primers, varget with Barnes TTSX. All cases were trimmed and chamfered at exactly 2.005. bullets were seated using a federal fusion 165g as a guide and then the die tweeked to get overall length of 2.8. Every shell was checked and rechecked using digital calipers. Cases and necks were lubed properly and at no time did I experience any issues while making the ammo. worked a load up from 42.5 to 44.5 in 1/2g increments. At 44.5 chrono recorded 2389 fps and 2404 fps. Only issue was a slight tightness when closing the bolt but I think its due to the ogive being different between the fusion and barnes so I am grabbing a comparator from epps this week and I will test a few more . At 2400 fps this little canon will be an ideal bush gun this moose season. My shots where we hunt are always within 100yrds so I have no concerns with this combination not penetrating or expanding. Would I use this on moose hunting over bogs in NFLD, probably not, thats what my .338 is for but here in Ontario I think this little beast is perfect. I have a 7600 with a 16.5" barrel so when I get the round perfected Ill fire it in the 16.5" and see how much speed the 4" difference gives up. I have no idea how to post pics on here or I would show the guns and the round. Links are below if they actually work. Cheers

    Does 870 furniture just bolt right onto the 7600?

    Supposedly the Hornady 190gr Sub-X projectiles do not explode if pushed to normal velocity, I wonder how they would fair for hunting at shorter distance...

    The fore end yes but the stock needs an adapter or anything from a 20g. These barnes dont explode either they are all copper its just a question of making sure your over 2000fps for expansion. Their website states 1800fps as minimum but I have my doubts. I considered the berger VLD hunting but due to the short distance shots I have experienced I did not want them exploding into bits, I like moose meat so I try and damage as little as possible. Alot of research went into deciding which bullet to put into the PCR SB specifically for moose in dense bush. I think I made the right choice. Next year with some accuracy testing I may work up a 150 and 130g

    I'm thinking you will be surprised at how a 150gr - 180gr cup and core bullet will work at the low velocities

    If I were to take my PCR after moose within 100 yards I'd load it with 165gr partitions or Accubonds
