Shotguns / Re: SA-08 or Element - 20ga - Which one?
« on: November 06, 2017, 08:57:52 AM »
I own the SA-08 in 20 ga.  I bought it because of its light weight as compared to my 1187 12ga.  I have had no problems with the SA-08 and really like the gun.

Congrats on the new Weatherby SA-08. I am thinking about purchasing a Weatherby shotgun in 12 gauge. How does the SA-08 compare with the new Weatherby Element? Is the Element lighter in weight? Just curious. Since I am considered a senior citizen and yes, my Remington 11-87 is getting heavier, I am wondering how much lighter an SA-08 or Element might be for me.

I purchased a 20 gauge SA08 several years ago for the reason you mentioned.  My 11-87 was getting heavy when I hunted all day.  However when I dove hunt I continue to use my 12 gauge 11-87 because it has a little longer range than my 20 gaube SA08

I did go dove hunting on opening day last weekend, near Greenville, Tx.  Did not see a whole bunch of birds but did end up killing 9.  The gun shot great, no problems.  I used the light piston with 20 ga dove load shells.  I thought about changing to the heavy piston to see if it would eject the shells, but just did not get around to it.  Overall I really like the gun especially its light weight as compared to my 11-87 Remington.

I also bought the 20 ga synthetic stock earlier this year and hopefully will be dove hunting this weekend.  I'll also let you all know what I think about the gun.

Shotguns / SA-08 Heavy and Light Pistons Question
« on: April 03, 2012, 01:10:57 PM »
I just purchased a SA-08 20 gauge synthetic stock shotgun.  It came with two pistons one for heavy loads and one for light loads.  I have some Remington 2-3/4 inch shells 1oz shot 71/2 size shot.  I am not sure if thes shells are heavy or light. I read where most people start out breaking their gun in with the light load piston installed  I think that is what I am going to do unless someone with some experience says different and why.
