Beretta Model A300 Outlander Realtree Max5 Camo 12-Gauge No. J30TC18, $875

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The Beretta's tendency to jam when using light loads, greater felt recoil, and unimpressive patterning performance were all factors in its low rating. Although the shotgun handled well, recoil was the highest of all the shotguns in the test, even when the additional spacers were installed on the stock.

We liked the slightly larger trigger guard and safety button that would assist a shooter's handling factor even when wearing gloves. The silver trigger was a little slim for some of the sausage-fingered team members.
We had no problems with the forearm of the Beretta, which was not too small and not too large for anyone on our team.
The additional spacers supplied with the Beretta package were a nice touch, although we found that even with the added pads, the recoil was just a little sharper than with the others.
Just a plain old brass bead at the end of the barrel was adequate for our use in putting shot on target and on paper, but we would have liked to have seen a fiber bar.
