In the second paragraph down it discusses the sizes of 12 gauge ammo it will handle. According to the text it will fire anything from the two and three-quarter target loads through the THREE and ONE-QUARTER inch magnum shells. If they don't even know the shells their gun is designed to handle--------- maybe you should buy the Benelli!! Check it out below.

I don't reccomend them because I have seen too many SBE (I & II's) break in the field, including my own (and I sure don't have that gun now). One guy I know with a new SBE II that he paid 1400 bucks for takes his 'ol Mossy in the truck as backup. One season, and it has broken on him about every 3rd time.
I'd take my 11-87 way before I take out a SBE.
