At a recent 3-gun competition I used both, as well as a Benelli M2.
The Benelli was my favorite, and I would recommend it over the Versamax and the SLP. However, the Versamax takes 2nd place for me.
It was softer shooting than the SLP, and seemed quicker to reload . I also like the sights on the Benelli and Remington much more than the SLP.
