Mossberg 640 Chuckster

Just acquired a used Mossberg 640 in good shape. Any views on the best ammo, or just try them all?
Also, is there a difference between the 640 and the 640KD?

Congrats on the Chuckster. They are normally quite accurate in hunting terms, which is what they are designed for, not target shooting. (From my personal experience and information from others on RFC, seem to average around 1.25-1.50 MOA at 100 yards, and sometimes better, with preferred ammo).The prefix letters after 640K (A,B,D,T,etc,)signify small variations along the production run. Sometimes a change to the stock (checkered or plain) or a minor variation in the sights, etc., for instance. The basic barreled action did not change through its manufacturing timeline. You can contact Havlins for a complete run down of the time frames for the different variations, and they also have reproduction period sales catalogues. My personal 640 Chuckster shot best with Winchester 40 grain JHP. But since they are all individuals unto themselves as far as ammo preference, you should try several different brands/bullet weights. Have fun!

Have you had a chance to try her out yet? How does she shoot?

Plus, get her outside in the sun, snap some pictures and post a few. Let us see what you got.
