To all my Deer Hunting Brothers (Sisters) on the east coast. I am likely going to sell my Nova and get a SBEII or M2 slug gun. Nova was too noisey (see post below.)
I would appreciate any thoughts for other big game hunters as to which model would be best for 3" Sabots.
Thanks, in advance, OEH.

From what I understand the SBEII slug gun is chambered for 3 1/2". That means you can't shoot 2 3/4" and there is only one 3 1/2" slug (Lightfield) on the market to my knowlege. I've hunted my whole life with slugs and found that 2 3/4" are more accurate than 3" with very little difference in velocity/energy. I would go for the m2 or SBE I. My SBE shoots 1-2" groups well past 100 yards and I wouldn't hesitate to pull the trigger on any North American big game (took it bear hunting in AK).

As I stated in the main Benelli section, the info from 69beers about the 3.5" slug use is incorrect.
He is quite correct, IMHO, on the 2.75 issue though.
