I am in the market for a new turkey gun.  I want one with a thumbhole or pistol grip stock, and I want a semi-auto.  I'm thinking about a remington 1187 or a benelli sbe.  I was wanting to find out if anybody has patterned either of these, and if you have how do they pattern?  How does the remington compare to the benelli or to mossbergs etc.  Thanks for any help.

DrakeTaker -

I turkey hunted for a long time with an 11-87.  Very load specific is how I would characterize it.  If you are willing to spend the $$$ on a Benelli, you should also look for a Browning A-Bolt shotgun.  I bought one 5-6 years ago right after they were discontinued for about $400, now they are $1,700+ if you can find one.  However, you will just love it as both a turkey gun and slug gun for deer.  It's awesome.

Remmy's are quite good, all you mentioned are good. I have a Mossy 835 mag, it does the job nicely. The 935 is the auto version and it's quite good as well.

cyborg,

About the mossy, I was looking at the 935 auto grandslam turkey.  I have heard that the mossbergs pattern the 3.5" loads better because they are overbored.  I know that my xtrema patterns 3" loads better then 3.5" loads because of this.  What experience have you had with the mossy and what kind of choke did you use?

Mine does very well with the Modified, as well as the Full Turkey chokes, I have noticed that the lead rounds do better with the modified, and the tugsten with the full.
