A Centenial Model Beretta 12ga. O/U muzzle loader. I came accross one at an auction that I thought was going too cheap and the next thing I knew, it was following me home. I intended to sell for a profit to finance another project but it keeps looking at me with those puppy dog eyes and saying "keep me...keep me...I,m lot's a fun to play with". It is a pretty piece and handles like a dream...much lighter than one would exect. I,ve not talked to anyone who has ever even seen one, let alone shot one. I've been hunting with T/C percussions for many years, but have no experience with smokin' scatter blasters. Thanks, Walt :grin:

Maybe a couple pieces of advice. Try 75 grs. of 2f and equal volume of shot. Magnum caps work best but I guess #11s will work also. Load one barrel, leave the ramrod in it, then work on the other. No caps till their both loaded. If one is loaded and capped, remove the cap to load the other.

If you shoot that shotgun, your life will change. You will want to shoot trap, then take it after doves, pheasents, grouse, ducks, and etc. I haven't shot my Benelli in two years since I bought a Pedersoli 10 ga s x s

Best of luck with your shotgun, it's a keeper.

:D Yuppers....gots one of them also. Originally mine came in a presentation box with all the neat little attachments like powder measure,started,shot bag and several other articles. It is a very light shotgun and is a real hoot to shoot. My oldest friend seems to keep it at his house as of late. Seems after he pulled the trigger a couple of times in followed him home. Gotta have a talk with that boy...........stay safe..King

Thanks for the encouragement guys. I didn't need much to convince me to keep it. My wife will attest to me being much better at buying guns than selling. Thanks fer the safety tip too there CF...that makes a lot of sense. Any suggestions on wads, cards, and/or shot cups. It appears to have very little or no constriction in the barrels. Probably try it first on some clays, then doves, and may be forced to take it on my South Dakota pheasant hunt this November. thanks again, Walt :)
