26 or 28 barrel for geese

Recommended Posts

Longer barrel = longer sighting plane and a smoother more fluid swing.

If hunting from a blind, the longer barrel is appreciated by blindmates for getting the noise out there another couple of inches.

You're right tuck. For years I shot a 26 but started shooting a 28 a couple of years ago and I believe the longer sight plane makes a world of difference.

I'm going to buy a new sbe II for geese, what barrel is best ? 26 or 28

There is hardly any difference, the only differences being what Tucker mentioned and they are small with only that much difference in barrel length. I would go for which ever one I could find a deal on, and if I found two identical deals with the only difference being one was a 26" and one was a 28" I would pick the 28".

I went round and round about this and even did polls on other fourms and the 28" Black SbeII won out. It all depends on you which feels better and sights better. I thought both shoulderd well and sighted well for me so I went with the 28" seem like both beads lined up a little better.

After 20 years of 26" bbls, I am buying 28" these days. Mostly because they pattern better for turkeys. Probably not much of an issue with wing shooting.

I like a 26". If someone new is hunting with me I want their barrel to be as long as possible:D

You wouldn't happen to be from the Bracey, VA area would you? :cool:

I'm not helping on that one.

I haven't talked to them since yesterday AM, so I'm not sure.

 

They hunted while I worked on a broken Honda. :mad:

Gotcha. They have any luck? Tell them to let me know if I can help with something else we'll find something that will work.

I talked with them around 10:30 AM and they'd only gotten one.

They weren't in there like they had been the two previous trips.

 

I'll pass the message on to Tommy tomorrow.
