I loved the 10 gauge doubles for there knock down ability and was happy until we were forced to go to steel shot and 10 gauge ammo became almost impossible to find.
When I go after geese or Turkey's I like the power of the 3 1/2'' 12 gauge and after trying most of the popular ones the big Beretta was for a long time the only purpose built 3 1/2" auto (All of the others were Modified 3" guns) .
The Extrema will shoot every thing from a 1 OZ 2 3/4 to a 2 1/4 OZ 3 1/2" turkey load with no ejection problems. (Most shotguns have a spring or piston that has to be changed depending on
the load in order to function properly.
I prefer the over and under for upland game birds and ducks. But when I want lots of power I grab my Extrema and never worry about failures to function .
Just my opinion
