Default Choke/Shell combo for a Nova

Got a new Nova for waterfowl hunting and plan on using it for Turkey also. Done some reading on here and thinking about an undertaker choke. Can't decide if I should go for lead or hevi-shot. Have never shot hevi-shot and don't like the price of it but may try it. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Proven combo here. After several test rounds and chokes I recommend the Undertaker choke tube by H.S Strut w/ Winchester black box 3 1/2 # 5's. That said you will pulverize your target out to 45 yds.

I went with a Carlson tube. Win. supreme's 3" 5 or 6 shot patterned fine.
The diference between them was too close to call.

Go to the Nitro website and they have a chart that shows what choke they recommend with each gun for use with their hevishot.

Hey Brad,
If your talking benelli nova here is my opinion. I shot Bebelli M1 Super 90 3" with comp-n-choke & winchester 1 3/4 oz #6. No problem out to 45yds.
Maybe comp-n-choke .655 choke 5's or 6's this combo I promise will mork for you in 3.5" nova.


Gobble, Gobble......... Bang!
