It's a matter of personal taste. Back when I did some shotgun hunting, I preferred a SXS to an O/U by a mile. I lost interest in birds a long time ago, but I still have my 16 ga Winchester 24 and my little 18 inch barrel Savage 311A.
The little Savage, loaded with 00 buck, still takes a lot of rides with me in my truck.
