    Tasty. Stuff a breast side into a Jalapeno with some cream cheese, into the smoker for 30 min or so. Maybe wrap with bacon to kick it up.

    Eurasian Dove are an invasive species, remain local year round, no license, no limit, no season, thousands of them in the area. I don't shoot them much in summer due to Morning Dove (license req'd, season Sep 1 - mid Oct) in the area and have trouble seeing the difference at any range.

    Back to the OP's original questions. I wonder if you could swap a lighter recoil spring to allow sub-sonics to cycle? Swap the OEM back in for normal loads.

    SR22 definitely will not cycle lower velocity loads. You have to hand cycle each one. Am working up a range report on mine as we speak.

    Will have to find out what is available on lighter springs.
