Been hammering on the geese for the last two weeks, mostly with 3.5 1 5/8th winchester extended range, does not bother me a bit. I only weigh 160lbs and really it is not even a thought.

For ducks I usually stick with 3 inch stuff!

Its all relative. If you are used to shooting a pump you will likely think its less.

I am used to shooting an 1100.... I shot a friends M2 three times a few days ago and noticed a right substantial increase in recoil. Not painful but noticeable.
Tell your wife you love her, wrestle in the yard with your kids, shake your best friend's hand, let your dog sleep on the bed, and thank God for all the blessings in your life.

You're going to feel 3.5 shells pretty good in a SBEII. My hunting buddy shoots 3.5 shells in his and doesn't complain. However if you are recoil sensitive and you're set on shooting 3.5 shells, It may not be the gun for you. That said. I rarely shoot or feel the need for 3.5 shells. I have taken the time find great 2 3/4 and 3" loads that pattern really well and are plenty deadly.

All I shoot in my SBE11 is 3.5...The recoil is not bad at all.

As long as I'm shooting at birds, I don't feel any recoil at all. Now at the patterning board, I don't like to shoot any more than nescessary because that's where I notice the recoil but it's not overwhelming.

It's not bad. My sbe2 has a little more pop than my Maxus had, but not much.

You will hurt your middle finger. Guaranteed. Buy a beretta and don't look back.

As someone else said the only time I notice it is when I shoot paper. They will rock you. However I have yet to notice them when hunting.

With that said I rarely shoot 3.5" shells now. Once I found some good patterning 3" shells I just didn't see the need in spending 50 bucks more for a case.

In 8 years of hunting with my sbe2 and shooting 2 3/4-3 1/2" shells I have never had my middle finger get hit by the trigger guard. I have heard of some that have however no one on my group had ever had it happen.

perhaps if you hold your gun improperly . as for the recoil for the sbe2 with 3 1/2 shells comparing it with my sx3 it is roughly the same i don't notice much in the heat of the moment but even when shooting for fun its about the same. you would need to shoot a high volume of shells in a short period of time too notice much of a difference.
if you can read this your almost as smart as a dolphin.

Of all the semi-automatics I have shot (a majority of those that have been made) the Benelli SBE's have the most severe recoil of them all, to me. This includes A5's, Rem 48's, 58's and other spring actions.

I had 2 that I shot for 3 years up to last year. I will admit the recoil was there but for hunting it didn't bother me. I had both the regular stock (american series) and comfort tech. I couldnt tell the comfort tech did a thing. If I were going to get one just get the American Series. Cheaper and recoil is = in my opinion. However, they did almost sever my birdie finger on my trigger hand. Doesnt happen to many people but the ones it does happen to it sucks. I sold mine off and bought Berettas. Best thing I ever done. My SBEII's jambed very rarely, so far the berettas are flawless and 75% less recoil. On top of that I seem to kill way more ducks and i do relate that to the recoil issue that I didnt pay attention to. Good luck!

I second that finger beating but I wouldnt say guaranteed. I been shooting skeet/trap since I was a kid. I don't think its how you hold the gun, it just does this to some people who knows why? I say combo of recoil/person frame size/and trigger guard design. If I am shooting a gun wrong its kinda funny ever other brand shotgun I owned never did this. I also know 2 other guys I have hunted with on occasion that have had this happen. Maybe try searching this website for this I know myself I have opened a thread on it.

The SBE is a light gun. If you are worried about recoil that much, either dont buy a 3.5", buy a heavier gun, or realize that recoil comes with the territory and deal with it.

Mabee it is the Duck Hunting gods trying to tell you that you are not worthy of shooting a Benelli :yes: They make other guns for guys that hold their shotgun like a tea cup and are scared of recoil. Try a 20 ga 2 3/4 in gas Auto with steel Dove load. And a padded shooting jacket. And throw in a jell butt plate and a ported wad stripper choke. I hope that dosent hurt to bad :crying: .I see guys all the time at the Range that can't hit the broad side of a barn with a big caliber tack driver because they flinch so bad.. I love my Benellis :bow:..Learn to deal with your bloody fingers and sore shoulders..It will turn you into a man....A Benelli man.
