Central Penn Sporting Clays, Wellsville, PA. Shoot 100 and finish up with 25 wobble trap targets. Hopefully, the weather here in central PA will cooperate!! :wink:

Nice guns. I tried all the Berettas but just could not find one the felt good to me. Really wanted one though and ended up with a 725 that feels and shoots like it was built just for me :biggrin:

Good luck in the shoot :beer:

I also have a 725, 32" Sporting. I picked the Beretta up NIB for $1814, couldn't pass it up. I switch back and forth. Both are excellent target shotguns, but different in their own ways...

I loved mine and it shot great but finally sold it due to the barrel selector was so old it moved when
barely tuched and would cost me birds when shooting at night.

Have a ugly O/U Browning Citori now..............but it shoots ok.
Still have the 391 for ducks and field work, though.

Good luck on that shoot.............
In that 1st picture. that sure looks like a LONG barrel on that gun !!

the gun has the new Beretta Optima barresl and flush cut choke tubes. The choke tubes are pretty much standard constriction. For sporting clays I use LM/M 90% of the time. The first picture looks like the gun has 6 foot long barrels!! Optical illusion, but the barrels are 32"...

I have the 32" barrels too but love my extended choke tubes.

I sure your Beretta is a fine gun with 32" barrels , just like my Browning 425 with 32's also !

And Yes , I also like my Briley's in the extended chokes for this gun .

I don't know if you reload but this year I stumbled into two loads that work for me at the HDCP.

Remington sts, w209, cb3118a, 19.5gr Green Dot with 7.5..........1200fps
Peters "Blue Magic", w209, RxP12, 21 grs of Unique with hard 8's ........1200 fps

and if you use Federal Gold Medals: f209, 12s3, 22 grs Unique at 1200 fps....... (opt.)
