Re: benelli shotguns
Ultralight has a higher carbon fiber rib, is nice to carry for pheasant and rabbit but turkey loads will not be fun due to the light weight. Monte has a lower rib, weighs a little more, but is not heavy, and is a good general purpose gun, most people prefer one over the other as far as fit due to the rib height difference. Ethos is a new model haven't seen or held one, not sure if it's worth the extra $$, but it may be to you. I would steer you to the Monte or the higher rib M2 (like the ultralight) but no wood available on the M2, and depending on what fits you. Have you shouldered any of these? The SBE II is another option, high rib, shoots 3 1/2 if you wanted to for turkey and can be had in wood stocks but they run a couple hundred $$ more than the Monte or M2. There is almost no difference in the actions except for some new modifications in the Ethos, so it comes down to fit, rib preference, weight, and chamber size. Happy shopping, season is coming up fast!!
