    I've got a Benelli Super Black Eagle that I won in a turkey calling contest at Cabela's that I like to use. Kick's .655 choke with Winchester Extended Range #6's. I can put over 70 pellets in the head and neck at 40 yards. To say it's lethal is an understatement!!!!!!!!! God bless.

    hate to get off subject here but have you ever had any problems with your banelli SBE not wanting to load the second round?,i had one i bought for duck hunting and it seemed when the weather got cold it had a real hard time loading the next shell and when it did load it it wouldnt fire all the time.this seemed to only happen with 3 1/2" shells.have you ever had a similar problem with yours?.i hav ebeen eyeballing one of the banelli M1 steady grips,that looks like the ultimate turkey gun.

    I use my Mossberg 9200 with a ribbed barrel with tru-glo sights along with the Undertaker™ screw in choke. I used 2 3/4" No#6 Turkey Mag. from Winchester. Works great for me!

    Have never had a problem with mine yet. Shoots all loads just fine without a hang up. Just a little cleaning after each hunt if the weather is fowl and it's ready to go. Otherwise I don't clean it much and it performs flawlessly. God bless.

    I would recommend getting a Kick's Gobbling Thunder Choke Tube and shooting Winchester Extended Range or some other non-toxic hard hitting turkey load. They pattern wonderful. If you want the ultimate in turkey loads for a 20 guage, you need to get the Nitro shells(and not the Remington ones either!!!!!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!). You can do an engine search and find them, but they aren't cheap. In a 12 guage they are absolutely lethal!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can put close to 300 pellets in a 10" circle at 40 yards!!!!!!!!!! God bless.
