new vinci owner!

Recommended Posts

I like the B&P F2 Mach 1 oz #8 loads for doves with an IC or LM choke. These loads work great in my Vinci.

Hattles, what 1 oz loads are you shooting?

I've been shooting Fiochi spreader loads, max dram 1oz. and also Federal(Blue Box) max dram 1oz game loads.

No problems and I buy the Federals from Wal Mart @ $4.67/box.

My vinci does not have any trouble cycling any loads but the trigger pull is way too short is there anyway to lengthen in and stay with the gel pads?

Agreed. I put an Easy Hit SG 3 mm RED-5" Sight on my 20 ga SuperSport. I am also not overly crazy about the sticky tape instillation, but it has held up fine half way through the pheasant season. The sight helps me make sure that I put the gun up correctly when a pheasant flushes. I find myself using the site to readjust my gun position while firing. If I miss the first shot it is usually due to my gun not being put up correctly. Either the stock catches on my vest on the way up to my shoulder or I have my gun up my a** while the boys are working a bird. Tom Knapp uses this sight and he shoots OK.

 

Shooting high is the European way and Benelli is a European gun. This method of sighting is a tremendous advantage shooting trap, skeet, or birds. Sighting high helps you hit a rising bird. You can actually see your target when you pull the trigger. I learned shotgunning using a Browning A5 and the "high" sighting of a Benelli is a great improvement. If think Benelli shoots high, try a high end trap gun.

 

A properly-fit shotgun will shoot 60% of the pattern above the POI, and 40% below. The best sight picture has the bird floating just above the barrel. And, most patterning is done at 40yds, not 20, and not less than 30yds. Just some suggestions - - - a lot of this has to do with gun mount, which goes back to gun fit as well.

The Vinci is by far the smoothest shotgun I have tried. I just bought my first 28 inch the other day. Have fun with it.
