Default I am no longer recommending the Beretta A300 as the...

best shotgun out there. I got me one of these, and it seems pretty nice.

Is it geared toward trap, skeet or both? Nice shotgun!

And the price difference is?

This comparison feels like a Glock vs. Wilson thread...

Absolutely Beautiful Gun!
But does it throw a better pattern as well?
Serious question.

Nope, a shotgun pattern is a shotgun pattern.

Actually, when everyone was getting out, I jumped in. I had a good day last week, so I bought it.

Going from a 525 to a K gun is like going from an F150 to a Porsche!

Definitely a learning curve from one to the other. Congrats on the K gun!

My clays gun was a Browning 525. Actually two, a 30" and a 32". My duck gun is the A300.

It's such a great gun for the money that I always recommend it to people looking to get into shotgunning.

A very nice gun, a number of club members where I shoot at have them (trap versions) and they shoot really nicely.

I should have bought it 10 years ago.
