Look for Benelli’s acclaimed Ethos in a 28-gauge version this year. Chambered to accept three-inch loads, it’s a true 28-gauge magnum, and Benelli has partnered with Fiocchi Ammunition to develop the world’s first three-inch 28-gauge loads to feed it. These will allow for ¼ ounce more shot, translating into 20 per cent more pellets on target at practical ranges.
