Default Best bang for your buck semi auto shotgun

Looking for opinions on good semiauto shotguns for the price. I like Benelli but $1500 is a little steep. I will be mostly deer hunting since most counties in VA don't allow rifle. I will be running dogs and still hunting.

There are better and more expensive shotguns but the Remington 1100 has always done right by me.

If your willing to go used than check out the ithaca 900. I have a limited edition that is bout 40 years old and still tight as new. Killed alot of game with it. Personal best shot was a doe running at bout 100 yards. Would put it up against any shotgun on the market.

I've always shot a Remington 1100 and a Browning A-5. Both are great guns. Do they even still make the 1100 ? I think I've seen it in 20 but not 12. Didn't the 1187 take it's place ? I'm not really up on shotguns.
I do know they came back out with the A-5s but they are steep, like $1300.
That being said, I have seen some real bargains on used ones, like $500. You might want to check GB or some other on-line sites.

You will be hard pressed to find a better gun for the buck over an 1100. Remington makes great working guns for fair money.

I wasn't sure if they make the 1100 anymore either. I would be willing to buy a nice used one or a browning silver or gold. Is the 1100 only 2 3/3" or 3"? I could always use the 835 to shot 3.5" for turkey.

I would think a 3.5" would be harder to make accurate follow up shots anyways. Unless you are shooting at a deer over 60 yards you don't 3.5" shells as long as you have the right choke.
