Some 3.5guns are nortirous for not shooting some of other options. My buddy has an 11/87 in 3.5. Even with hotter 2.75's that thing was a jamomatic. He made a pheasant hunt miserable with all his screaming everybody stop while he kept trying to get it working. We bought one of the 3.5 silver's last year cheap on clearance for my wife to try trap with me. (Figured new goose gun for me
too. That gun has cycled everything we have put through it including the factory low recoils and my reloaded version of a low recoil. My guess the Winchester will eat it all too. Depending on weight (gun being too light) they say the 3.5's can be harsh on the shoulder. I have a new A5 and really like it. I looked into getting another in 3.5 down the road but hearing all the reviews it kicked like a mule with the 3.5's changed my mind quickly. I'll stick with my 2.75 gun and use the silver if I really need to use a 3.5 inch shell.
