Benelli Nova Discharge issue

Postby chaltig » Thu Oct 18, 2012 1:57 pm

On my past two outings I have had a problem with the shell not discharging at all from the gun :huh: . To be specific the shell is st ill in the most forward part of the chamber (locked in the barrel). I have looked around and haven't found anything stating a similar problem. Anybody else experience this problem?

check your extractor and extractor spring.

Shells that are high pressure will often cause the brass to swell and get stuck in the chamber and not eject. What shells are you shooting?

If you'd shot a lot of shorter shells .... say 2 3/4" ... then start shooting 3" or, more so 3.5", you could have extraction problems because of a failure to properly clean the chamber of powder fouling. It often takes a 10 ga. bore brush rotated on a drill bit and some good powder solvent to clean out all the gunk. Powder fouling can set up to be almost like asphalt with exposure to gun oil and passage of time.
