I will freely admit to being unreasonably prejudiced, but I would never pay money for a Benelli. Or own another one. Or accept one as a gift. Or remain in the same room as one.

I have always found "target" shotshell hulls to be the BEST for reloading. I think they are more uniform and more durable, giving more reloads per hull than field grade or economy shells.

I've never had a bad experience with a Remington 11-87 or an 1100, but I haven't handled one made less than about 6 or 7 years ago. They do need a break-in period, and they need to be kept clean...
