    Looking for any comments on the ability of a benelli montefeltro (12ga) to cycle light or normal 3dram 2 3/4 loads. I've read about the kick versus a 391, but figured I'll try one out for awhile anyhow. That being said if it won't cycle 2 3/4 loads reliably then I'll have to pass.

    Thanks -Boyd

    In my experience , it depends on the individual gun or, more properly, the individual recoil spring in the stock. My montefeltro will not cycle 1 oz loads; my sbe will. Previously, you could buy a lighter recoil spring from brownells. Don't know if they are still available or not.

    My Monti will cycle any shell I've thrown in her. Don't shoot many light loads but the heavy stuff is no porblem. Dave T.

    I shoot 7/8 oz shells with 15.4 grains of 700x and it cycles fine.
