super black eagle or xtrema

I have a Beretta 391, I've used it in some nasty weather without a problem. I would highly recommend the Beretta.

Good Luck,
Ben

the sbe is the way to go. they dont jam 4 of my huntin buddies got them smooth accurate and they got good range. if you wanted to do this with a 1200 dollar gun yoou could bury it in mud for a week come back clean out the barrel and it will fire right off no probs. now thats reliability. for geese put a 31/2 T shot and there deadly there dead on impact. as far as range and accuracy id put the power up there with my ten gauge ithica. and a whole lot lighter. but with the sbe your definately getting what you paid for. the 870 is also a good choice for a pump and cheap. but my next will be the sbe.

I don't have the SBE but the super 90, and this thing is the best waterfowl gun I ever owned. you can only shoot 3 inchers from the 90, so I would think the SBE would be even better.
what I like about this gun, is that I can go from grouse hunting low brass shells to top mags, and this this works the same. I wish my winchester could do that.
make sure to get a camo gun, well worth the extra bucks.

I am looking to buy a new shotgun and was trying to decide between the Benelli Super Black Eagle or the New Berreta Xtrema. I need a 12 gauge, 3 1/2, 26 inches, that can handle cold weather and water. I hunt here in MN and also in the river bottoms in WS. I plan to use it for upland and waterfowl, and possibly a little turkey. I think synthetic stocks would be better prefferably in camo. I also like pumps but don't mind auto's. Reliability is key, I don't need it to jam up on me when I've got geese overhead. I had my heart set on the super black eagle because I've shot them before and really like them but also like the xtrema for it's simplicity in cleaning, (it comes apart in only 3 pieces). If anyone has shot them and knows anything about them I could use some help. Thanks.

A rem 870 express will never let you down, you could use it as an oar or a push pole in a pinch and it still will work but it is not in the same class as the guns you are looking at.
Good luck picking one out!

I shoot a Montefeltro and it shoots the cheapest low brass to the heaviest 3 mags. I like this gun cuz it is light and it comes up nice. I shot 4 boxes today of 1 1/8 oz 7 1/2 shot and I was wearing just a t shirt and I cant even tell i was shooting a gun as far as my shoulder feels. Someday I want to get a SBE but I dont hunt geese so I figure right now I dont need it at least that what my wife says but i want one. I shot a Super X2 that my buddy has and he even liked my Benelli over his Super X2 after he shot it a few times. My dad has a Beretta and i shot it. Its a nice gun but I would go with a benelli. I think Beretta owns Benelli is what i was told. Is this true i dont know but I go for the SBE all the way.

Performance worth the Price!

I shoot the Xtrema, awesome gun. A little bigger physicaly than the sbe, but I like the way it fits me and thats what counts. I can shoot the cheapest low base lead shot(7/8 oz shot) and it will cycle every time were as the sbe's that people I hunt with have they have to shoot at least 1 oz loads. The extrema is built like a tank! And the recoil reduction that thing has will amaze you, check it out. I got a good deal on mine down at Ostrom's sporting goods down in Dalton. Give me a holler if you have any more questions.

As you may have noted from my post that I was thinking of getting a SBE myself. Well I have had it for about two weeks now and love it. I know many other people that have Benelli's (super 90, montefeltro, M-1, SBE) and they love them. Have heard good things about the Berretta as well. The SBE just felt better to me. It had less weight and felt less "bulky" compared to the Berretta. Berretta does have a better camo patter on it. It is a nice cattail/marsh camo compared to having to go with a woodland in the SBE. I have the black synthetic with the 26".

Thanks everyone for getting back to me. It sounds as if both are great guns, I guess the only way to decide which gun to buy is to shoot a few rounds out of each gun and figure out which one fits me better. The added weight of the Beretta doesn't bother me because it helps my swing. Although it might be bothersome carrying it throught the woods or the fields after birds. Thanks again for the input.

I went through the same decision last year and decided on the Extrema - I have been very happy with my decision thus far. I don't think you can go wrong with either. I thought the Extrema fit me a little better. I'd shoulder them both and see how they feel.

    • I leave it behind on purpose at times..........
    • NOT in some of the places i go fishing.................AND most the time i go fishing to get away from said phone!!!!!!!
    • Sounds like a good seminar!
    • After starting out the winter with a lack of snow February is making up for it. Earlier in the week the southern half of the state received 4 to 6 inches of snow and in the last couple of days the north and northwest received from 4 to 8 inches of snow.Snowmobile trails are now open in most, but not all, counties across the state with conditions rated as good or excellent in many counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR). Many state properties were regrooming cross-country ski trails and ski trail conditions ranged from good to excellent. Some freezing rain fell in the south after the snow, resulting in some icy conditions in some locations. Temperatures are expected to warm this weekend, especially in the south where more rain is also in the forecast, while the north is expected to get more snow.With all the recent snow, conditions should be excellent for the American Birkebeiner Ski Race this weekend in the Hayward-Cable area. It is the largest ski race in North America and attracts thousands of skiers from all over the country and world -- skiers from 49 states and 36 countries participated in 2018 -- and draws tens of thousands of spectators to the area. .
    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.
