I've used 3.5 BB shells in my SBE's when duck hunting for the occasional high flying goose that may come over the blind. I've dropped quite a few snows and blues that came a little low over us. Other than that, never used 'em.

Beretta a400 xtreme. Great for duck and with a sumtoy choke will throw some sick patterns for turkey.

Also strongly consider a Winchester SX3 (or the new SX4).

Shoulder them all and see which fits best. If it doesn't swing or sight-line correctly for you, it doesn't how much you've paid for it, you won't be happy.

Might have to do that. This gun is a work horse. Can paddle a boat with it, pull up and shoot all day in the boat or the blind. I've had the "Benelli Click" on occasion but that was when I first got it years ago and never had a problem since. I've got an SBE and SBE2 and love them. I actually passed down the SBE to my son for his 18th birthday.

I replaced all my SBE II springs with heavy Wolff springs last summer. This was after at least 5K heavy rounds down that tube and a bunch of light loads. I didn't realize how sluggish that old boy had gotten. Would still sling shells but those new springs made it hop!

My choice to go with the heavy springs is cause that SBE II never goes to the clays course any more.

I have a used Mossberg 935. Shoots 3-3.5 Everytime I pull the trigger. And since it was only 350. I don't feel bad using it to knock down brush.

I can tell by the Benelli supporters on here that I am definitely the minority. But I would NOT choose a Benelli over a Beretta or Browning. I had a SBE I and it shot every time I pulled the trigger, but kicked pretty bad the POI was off bad, like nearly 18" at 40 yards. I tried patterning it with several different turkey loads and every one was low and right. I ended up getting rid of it.

Browning Maxus. Best handling, lightest recoil, shoot anything you shove down the pipe autoloader on the market.

I'll go ahead and be "that guy"......instead of dropping $1500 on a "B-gun", I'd buy a Stoeger 3000 or 3500 (depending on if you want a 3" or 3.5" chamber) and spend the money you saved on ammo and other gear. A 26" barrel is a good compromise between a longer barrel for wingshooting and a shorter one for turkeys.

And don't let anyone tell you they won't cycle light dove loads.....when you get it, clean it thoroughly before you shoot it, then shoot a couple of boxes of the heaviest, hardest-hitting shells you can buy, to soften up the recoil spring a bit. Also, do NOT use the recoil reducer, mine cycles light shells flawlessly as long as I leave the recoil reducer out of it.

I was wondering if someone was going to bring up the 935. I think it's a fine gun. I've owned all the B guns and the Mossberg 935 I take in the pit blind with me now does just as good.

I have a 935 and I have never had a issue with it and it patterns amazing, I shoot dove loads with it all the time and it cycles fine. My only complaint is the weight but it truly made me quit looking for other turkey/duck guns I think i will shoot it for years to come.
