Default RE: bennelli m/nova

I think that's a good price on the Nova. I bought mine back when they first came out and have used it as a dedicated turkey gun. The gun is fairly light in weight and has some pretty stout recoil using 2 oz turkey loads. I only shoot this shotgun 3-4 times a year. I would suggest doing away with the hard rubber butt pad that comes with it and install a slip over Simms pad, this will aid in reducing felt recoil. I am using a Carlson .665" tube along with Winchester Extended Range 3 1/2" #5's and it has'nt let me down yet. I have installed a Leupold 1-4x scope on it and the longest shot on a gobbler has been 51 yards.


I just painted this last week using a digital pattern and it seems to hide itself better than the dipped marsh camo it came with.
