    I read this before and I believe you have the same model shotgun as me, Beretta A350, so I ordered a tru-lock SK1, I tried 3" bbb and 3 1/2" bb, the pattern broke up at 27 yards so I can't use that, finally found a choke with great patterns with large shot, Briley hunting choke, Goose .025", Don't have a Vinci but you might want to try the Briley duck .015" or the goose .025".[/QUOTE]

    How many different brands of ammo did u try in BBB and BB loads?... I've seen patterns tighten em in the same choke from different brands ammo

    I often hear that, but in my pattern work I did not find that to be true with my Rem-chokes.

    Pattern results from a 12-gauge 3-inch Remington 870 Special Purpose with a 28" barrel and factory flush Rem-chokes (pattern average of five, 30" post-shot scribed circle, yardage taped muzzle to target, in-shell pellet count average of five, and true choke constriction from bore gauge).

    12 GA 3" FEDERAL PREMIUM BLACK CLOUD STEEL LOAD
    1 1/4 oz #2 steel (91 zinc plated steel + 53 FS steel pellets = 144 pellets) @ 1450 fps

    40 YARDS
    IC (.009" const.) / pattern 88 (61%)
    Mod (.018" const.) / pattern 92 (64%)
    Full (S/L) (.037" const.) / pattern 113 (78%)

    Now you can be the judge!

    @Joe Hunter I've always had trouble getting #2's to pattern in my guns with most loads but who knows

    A lot of Benelli guys say that about 2's. I've never owned a gun that didn't do well with 2's. Maybe there is something to this. Bore diameter? I know all of the Berettas I have owned haven't patterned BB's for anything, I always thought that could be the problem.

    I found that my daughter was able to drop snow geese better with 3” #2s out of her A300 Outlander, than I could with 3.5” BBS from my VM, so I swapped to #2s myself and had better luck. Part of it was likely due to my daughter being a better shot with a shotgun than me though. Lol

    Funny how all of the high priced gimmick loads and Kent Faststeel have the lowest percentages. I have often thought that is why the after market over choked guys like those gimmick shells.

    I love how people hate on xperts so bad about the shot in it and they pattern pretty good... when I goose hunted more when I got into this sport before I patterned guns and played with chokes... the factory mod in my vinci and the 3" xpert #2's folded geese better than my buddy shooting hevi metal BB and blindside he bought into all those gimmick shells
