Now you are looking for trouble. Everybody is going to make a different suggestion and you'll be lost. You should stick to your question and get an answer to that one.
As for me it is definetely the Beretta 391
Don't know much about the Weatherby, but I am very pleased with my Beretta 391 Urica Gold Sporting.
I was lucky enough to buy it slightly used from a member of our club who had only put about four boxes of shells through it.
He decided he shot his 686 o/u better than the semi auto. I don't think he gave the 391 a fair evaluation.Kind of glad it turned out this way as I saved a substantial amount over the cost of a new gun.
Go Beretta! I was looking at these two guns as well. After handling both, I definatley thought the Beretta felt better and also seemed more solid. The salesman did tell me though that the internal's of the SAS were the same as the Beretta!?
Not sure if thats true or not. Anyway, I went with the Beretta AL-391 Urika and never looked back. I've shot about 300 rounds through it. Mostly 2 3/4 light field loads but also a box of 3in mag's while Teal hunting. Not one Jam or hang up. When people say a 391 will shoot anything....believe them, it seems to be a true statement.
I say if you have the extra money....go Beretta. If you want to save a few dollars....go Weatherby SAS. Remember, the SAS hasn't been around long, so it may have some issues people haven't discoverd yet. Probably un-likely though. Weatherby makes a fine gun.
