Just got done with a local 3 gun competition today and this shotgun runs absolutely flawless. Not one malfunction all day. Took it out for practice a week ago and fed every round i put into it. Even though the website says that the minimum load is 3 DRAM 1 1/8 oz I was able to feed everything from 7/8 oz birdshot to 2 3/4 DRAM 1 1/8 oz to 3 in Mag slugs. Flawless feeding and minimal recoil. Only con is the price. Benelli truly is "Simply Perfect"
