Buddy of mine who is wanting to get into 3 gun is picking up equipment for it and due to working weekends at the moment has not made it out yet. I talked to him last night and he has been researching the m2 and even called beneli with questions. They said the m2 3 gun edition without a extension will cycle 3 dram eq 1 1/8 loads, but one with a 8 shot extension would need 3 1/4 dram 1300 fps 1 1/4 loads. I found this crazy and I know what the beneli fanboys will say about this. I did want to ask if the m2 needed a break in, I thought it wouldn't since its polished from the factory.
