Feedback on benelli(SBE2)- bead aims way lower than pattern

Any one familiar with this?? Will the shims they come with correct this problem at all?

That is very very common. A simple fix is to install a "fat bead" in place of the stock front bead. This will raise your line of sight and lower your pattern.
Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!

Adjust the gun the way it is designed with the shims, there is no mystery to it just a deep well 13MM socket and little bag of shims. Benelli's ribs are set up to use a style of shooting called "floating" the target which means you point just to the lower edge of the target thus "floating" it above the bead on your swing, pull the trigger and watch it crumble. Add the correct shims to increase the drop in the stock and the point of impact will drop as well. Good luck and go use a patterning board.
