What Shells for SBE


Recommended Posts

I have a SBE that has just recently been cleaned and reassembled with the help of a Benelli Expert. My question is when I bought this gun about 8 years ago they told me you could only shoot 1 1/8 shot out of it? is this true? would other sizes jam?

If it hasn't been fired much I'd at least use a heavy target/heavy dove load. Also, cleaning is good but make sure you oil it properly. A slight trace of oil isn't enough. No oil and dry it won't cycle a 3 1/2" shell. Bolt rails and recoil assembly mostly. Remember it's a gun designed to handle 3 1/2's so wimpy loads won't work.
