5 guns grilled the waterfowler

BENELLI Super Black Eagle III $1,899 DREW WARDEN BENELLI SUPER BLACK EAGLE III BENELLI’S SUPER Black Eagle shotgun line has been at the pinnacle of waterfowl hunting performance ever since the original debuted in the late ’80s and early ’90s. The latest entry in the line, the Super Black Eagle III is no exception. At first glance, the III might not appear too different from the prior SBE II, but there are noteworthy updates.The first of these is the Easy-Loading System, which Benelli has chosen to carry over from its Ethos shotgun line. The beveled loading port is nice for smoothly sliding in shells, but it’s the redesigned carrier that impressed me because it cures the common Benelli ailment of the carrier not achieving proper lockup when a…

load up a new long-distance shotshell

BRAD FITZPATRICK GUN COLUMNIST OVER THE YEARS, shotgun shells have come a long way. This year is no different as hardcore duck hunters welcome the introduction of a new shotshell.One of the latest shotshell additions to Browning’s line of ammunition is their BXD Extra Distance non-toxic shotshell load.

To accomplish this, Browning utilizes an aerodynamically stabilized wad with lateral slits and rear fins that act as brakes when the shot cup is in flight. When the fins open after the shot, the wad is stripped away from the shot column to produce improved patterns at 40 yards and beyond. The premium-plated round steel shot flies true and penetrates effectively, producing quick, clean kills…

Editor In Chief John Geiger (left) and State Editor Dr. Todd A. Kuhn put new guns to the test while shooting five-stand. (PHOTOGRAPH BY RON SINFELT) GAME & FISH EDITORS racked five new shotguns in order to give you a heads up about what each gun does best. We shot them in the field, on the trap range and five-stand, and at a sporting clays course. We experienced no major malfunctions after dozens of boxes of shells, but we did find some hits and misses among the group of 12 gauges. Each editor also took a turn blasting clays and targets with all the guns, and settled in for more time with one specific scattergun. We used a variety of shells and shot sizes. Brands included Federal Premium…
