  1. A topic that has been beat to death I suppose. I have a SBE II that I picked up last summer (50th b-day gift to myself). I have found, hands down, this is the finest field gun I have ever owned. I have used it consistently for early season dove hunting, and found that I could quickly pick up birds (and down them) etc. Wonderful! I have also shot the gun some in clay games, both in sporting clays as well as skeet (and a little trap). I shoot 1220 fps 1 oz Rios exclusively (and have never had a single ftf, jam, or anything of the sort) for this application. Now here is is my question.
  2. Great suggestion...Thanks! I'll try this next time.
  3. I ordered a new SBE II (LH) with 28" bbl and in black synthetic. in March and finally picked it up a week ago. I cleaned and lubed it and took it to the range this past Friday. What a dream machine! I never even had a chance to break it in with heavy field loads--just shot 1.125 oz target loads, and it cycled these fine all afternoon long. I am now convinced, indeed, dead certain, that this gun is worth every penny I plunked down for it. It fits me very well and handles very well, too. It is also so easy to clean when done. I will for sure be a dedicated Benelli owner/shooter for the res
  4. I faced the same decision a while back and bought the SBE II in black. I just decided it was probably a bit more versatile for my purposes than was the camo. Plus, I have seen too many camo guns (not so many Benelli's, however), that look pretty cruddy in a few years.
