Took my browning silver hunter to the coast today and it had rust on it by the time I got home.

Need a dedicated duck gun.

How are the A300's?

I have a Beretta Outlander, and I love mine. I got it right before Dove season. My only advice to you is to just go ahead and get something that shoots 3.5" shells. The outlander only shoots 3" shells. I will tell you why I say that. I did a lot of research and everyone said that a 3" barrel would be fine. Well I got invited on a Duck/Goose hunt and those birds are high. If it wasn't for my friend having an extra shotgun that shot 3.5" shells, I wouldn't have got any geese. Save yourself some money and get one that shoots 3.5" shells. Instead of being like me. I love my A300, and I will not sell it, so now I have to spend more money to purchase another shotgun that shoots 3.5" shells

I have a Silver hunter as well and had to wipe it down with oil right after every hunt.

I got a Browning A5 and I love it. The Silver has a little bit of a humpback feel to it already so going to the A5 fit me great. I also like that it's inertia driven.

I'll never go on a goose hunt.

My duck hunting is usually shooting ducks over decoys so a 3" chamber is fine

Do 3.5" shells go farther distance?

No, they absoluteley DO NOT. They will hold pattern density farther because of increase in pellet count

No. In fact it typically has worse ballistics and patterns than 3". The thought that a 3.5" shell is needed to kill high flying birds or geese is your brain thinking "Well if 3in is good, 3.5in must be better, right?". Wrong. Here's more details as to why, that I don't have time to explain: http://www.chuckhawks.com/kill_3half_12gauge.htm

I want one! So I thing you should get one! up

I've never met a shotgun I didn't like to shoot but right now I'm sold on the beretta A300. I. just shipped one of my classic fixed choke beretta barrels off to get fitted for a trulock choke. I spoke with the gunsmith for a while about the different barrels he works on (well over 30 years exp.). He said by far beretta makes the best barrels. He said they are the harder to machine because they type of metal they use makes them far tougher than any other brand on the market. He also said the quality is second to none. We discussed the A400 and A300...he said they are the same gun platform and action. Just the A400 has more bells and nicer finish. He has me sold. Solid gun for great price.

Never shot one but I'll be getting one once my 391 bites the dust (if that ever happens). Every review I've ever read has been positive & the gun is almost a mirror image of my current gun. IMHO, I think they're the best value on the market

Got the gun

At first I was a little off put by the stock adjustments but after some mounting I appreciate the fact I can take an inch off the length.

Probably gonna shorten it a 1/2" to start to accommodate for wearing heavy clothes.

I'll give a field report when it sees some action next week

The new a300- for 900 bucks shoots 3.5 as well. I have older model- 725 bucks. By far best value for money
