As an owner and shooter of two Benelli Super Sports, both 12 and 20 gauge, I can tell you that right out of the box they would digest anything I fed them with nary a hitch. The shells I bought and shot were always the cheapest stuff I could find. Being a skeet shooter, and probably a poor one at that, I had no need or desire for the expensive spread! My Remington's on the other hand needed several box's of the heavy loads run through them before they would cycle the Wally World cheap stuff. I could go on for several more paragraphs on what a delight these Benelli's are to shoot, but then that wasn't your question was it.
