I agree.

Db presses allow more contraction (more ROM) of the pecs.

For this reason I go in cycles on whether I do Bb or Db primarily for pressing.

My bench really hasn't had a stall and my pec's are coming up nice.

Just like any other lift the primary strong muscles will do the work, even if its the target muscle. Unless you are using a slow controled tempo like 4-1-4-1 or 3-2-3-1, then theres no getting around the target muscle doing the work.
