Help with Nova Pump

Postby fito » Tue Dec 19, 2006 3:53 pm

:salude: I have a benelli Nova pump, I was woundering the chokes that come with it are any good, also what shot brand you recomend for this gun, is there any particular brand that patterns better for the nova?

Every gun patterns differently. You need to to pattern whatever shot you want to try from your gun to find out. That said, my buddy has a nova and I shoot a SBE both through factory chokes, we both shoot 3 1/2" #3 Estate, we split the cost of a case from Cabelas, and it patterns very well out of both of our guns.

I found that my stock choke wasn't patterning very well. I have always shot kent faststeel through my nova, and now I use a Briley light Mod. waterfowl choke

Brileys Duck and Goose chokes work very well for me in my nova. they are only about $30.

For me, with kents and estates, #2,#4 and #6s patterend great with the IC choke, but poorly with the modified.

The brileys chokes pattern all of them better though. Just my experience.

I use cheapo Winchester 3.5" #3's...steel. You dont have ta shoot steel in Mexico, so, Id use the cheapest dove loads I could find. The modified choke that came with your gun is GREAT for EVERYTHING up to T shot :thumbsup:

I only have one suggestion that hasn't been posted:
Get yourself an extened choke if you are waterfowling.
If you look through a bunch of posts you will find one
or two or maybe more of people asking how do I get
out a stuck choke tube. Like most waterfowlers I do
not clean my gun nearly enough. I have never had
a stuck choke but at least with extended chokes you
have room to grab on to it with channel locks or vise grips.
