airport1 Posted January 12, 2008 Share Posted January 12, 2008 I just bought a SBE II synthetic w/the rifled slug barrel. Want to get a field barrel and am uncertain about length. I hunt mostly turkeys and want to get back in to waterfowl. Like a 24" barrel for the turkeys, but will that with chokes still leave me at a bad disadvantage for geese? Is a 26" barrel with chokes a good alternative for waterfowl to a 28" barrel, or is it really a compromise that would work poorly for both turkey and geese? My old duck/goose gun was a Ithaca model 37 12 guage (28" barrel) but I only own one now with a full choke barrel which I don't think will work well w/steel shot. Want the Benelli field barrel, but at $500 + each, don't want to buy more than 1. Any help/thoughts?? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
