  1. Yah but you're the same guy who's lucky enough to hunt in raining malard country. I should try my SBE2 with lighter loads just to see how it does. When I first got it after break-in period, it still would not digest 1 1/8 oz less shot. Now that it's loosten-up a bit, maybe my old eagle would take it. I shall try it out coming Spring.
  2. Your Black Labs must be having a ball. Man you guys are kicking ass of malards. LLOOL..
  3. Do you even know what you shot with? Mine will shoot anything and cycle anything also as long as it's 1 1/8oz load.
  4. Holly Mac, Did you hit a flock of mallards only? Where did you find such a hunting spot where all there is Mallards? Nice!!!
  5. SBE2 and shot a S Vinci last year. I prefer my SBE2.
  6. Who are you guys talking too? Anyone here with a bit of research knows that if any Inertia Driven Benelli 12GA require 1 1/8 oz load in order to cycle without issues. It's clearly written in all Benelli manuals Some here have reported shooting with smaller stuff after break-in period without issues and consider themselves lucky. When I go out on a Duck Hunt, I don't take chances and always buy the 1 1/8 + stuff. J
  7. I don't think the majority here on this forum would agree. Depends what you mean by beat out?
  8. There's no difference with 3 1/2 shells. They both shoot 3.5" unless you go with the regular Vinci which only shoots 3". The S Vinci is faster for take down and reassemble hence faster to clean. However, I have no complaints about taking down my SBE as it's very easy and fairly fast to clean. For me, the SBE II shoulders better and feels better and never had mine jam. I think the Vinci cycles a bit faster but not enough to notice IMO. If you shoot 1 1/8 oz shot + and keep it clean and well maintained, neither should jam. If they do, and some have, call Benelli Customer service to have the issue addressed. Both are top notch and to me it's more of a preference in a personal way. Camo is easier to maintain also BTW. Good luck with your choice. J
  9. You just answered your own question. 1 1/8oz shot minimum is what's required for inertia to work. You should however break-in with heavy loads.
  10. 1- Reliability and easy to clean 2-Inertia Driven Action parts 3-With Comfort tech stock? yes 4-Once after waterfowl season over 5-Approx> 1k 6-yes 7-Ducks and Geese
  11. I don't have the answer you are looking for, however I can tell you that you are running the black sheep of the Benelli family. I've tried this in the past only to keep having problems one after another. Then I upgraded to the mid range of the Benelli family which is Franchi. Ran an I-12 for a while but the gun only ran good if kept clean and lub on rails only. That's when I got fed-up and splurged on a New Benelli Super Black Eagle II. Never been so happy since. Was a lot of money, but would have been cheaper if I had started with the Benelli from the get go. Worth every penny.

    He's asking for Mudhen not you.
  13. Most common Auto loads only come in Super Vinci, Vinci and Super Black Eagle II or you can go with Cordoba, M2, Super Sport, Sport II, Montfeltro, Legacy and Ultra Light. Nova and Super Nova are pump action guns only. http://www.benelliusa.com/
  14. Well, I didn't take any chance on it. Only used below 1500 fps Black Cloud stuff. Did notice one thing that even after tightening the choke with the wrench, after about my first box of ammo, the choke was loose a bit and had to re-tighten the choke. Was not too impressed with that. Is this normal for Carlson chokes?
  15. Well, I finally decided to try and install my new Speed Bead for this upcomming season. Had I known there was a bit of gunsmithing involved, I never would have purchased the darn thing. Instructions tell me to cut or drill out the oversize knobs that line-up to the receiver to the shim/buttstock. This is BS. You buy an expensive Burris product that tells you it fits a SBEII while it does not without mods. Burris, you just lost a customer for life.
  16. That sucks. I'm going out Monday morning with my new long range Carlson Black Cloud choke. My biggest concern is I have some black cloud ammo Duck Commander Snow Goose that shows 1650 fps on the box. Carlson recommends no more than 1500 fps stuff and a max of BBB. I'm debating on even using the 1650 stuff whereas I don't want to ruin my SBEII barrell. Does anyone have an opinion on this?
  17. Does it wabble when loaded or empty? I got a wabble sound in mine once and realize it was the ammo shakking sound that sounded like a wabble. Foregrip was tight, ammo inside was looose. Might not be an issue with your but just saying in case.
  18. Actually, that's my buddy. Not sure what make he's got but yes I use the BRL Honker myself. It saves me is screwing up my calls. Not the best sounds but appears to be working. You won't see me in Goose calling competitions with that one. I know my buddies is flexible flutish type but not sure of the make. I will ask him this week as we're going out to try his new Franchi Affinity he bought yesterday.
  19. These are hay fields surrounded by reed. There are also Ducks Unlimited ponds nearby we will be using opening day for duck season Oct.1st. We live in New Brunswick Canada. There not that many Geese in this part of the country so we really have to work for it and call them in. They usually fly in flocks of 6 or 7 and you'll get the odd flocks of 10-15. They merge together in the afternoons in various fields. The best place in Canada to hunt Geese is Clair Saskatchewan where they offer dream hunts. If you ever go, make sure you bring lots of ammo cause it rains geese over there. Check this link. http://www.aceoutfitting.com/photo.html
  20. [ATTACH=CONFIG]1647[/ATTACH]Opening day early season Canada Geese hunt pics. Our limit is 8 per day. Got six mostly all shot around noon hour. All shot with my SBEII.
  21. I wouldn't move to Canada just yet. They still have a long way to go before Canadians can be comfortable owning hand guns. But hey, it's a start and the way Obama is heading, you are all bound to loose your guns some day. I would hope you all know who to vote for at your next election. J
  22. The Conservatives have won approval from the House of Commons to scrap Canada's contentious long-gun registry. After a lengthy debate, MPs voted 159-130 in favour of passing Bill C-19, which will end the registry and allow the government to destroy records pertaining to non-restricted firearms. The bill still needs final approval from the Senate, but since the Conservatives form a majority in the Upper Chamber as well, the law is sure to pass.
  23. OK. I always stayed with Black Cloud Steel. They do sell Hevishot and Federal Heavyweight here in Canada. I never paid attention to those as I have always been pleased with my BC. I also assumed those were steel also and thought they were just names they used. So I guess I will have to get to google and learn.
  24. Not sure where they've gone to but, they left Canada late November. Late Canada geese only started leaving at around X-mas time.
  25. Well, in Canada, you can do jail time for hunting waterfowl with lead. Where I live, the is only two options. Lead and Steel on the store shelves. Obviously, I shoot steel which is outdated according to you. Could you school me on what else is available out there please?
