I guess I could have saved a lot of money and be driving a used Volkswagon, but there were too many other things I wanted in a vehicle to let money be the only
factor. I feel the same way about shotguns.
Different users have different priorities. I shoot Remington 99% of the time. My best friend shoots a Browning 99% of the time. Another friend shot a Benelli. Why do we not feel the need to try to convert each other? Why do people on an internet forum feel the need?
I do not believe there is a substantial difference in reliability between the subject shotguns. Use whichever gun you prefer in the best of health.
Oh, one more thing. Next time you are at a major trapshooting event, count the Mossbergs. It'll be a whole, whole lot easier than trying to count the Remingtons.
