  1. I'm pretty sure the cantilevered barrels are rifled for slugs and therefore slug only.
  2. That's what my wife says I'm doing (She's still trying to figure out why I bought a new chain saw when the old one works just fine.... I'm sure I don't have to explain that here)
  3. No, I don't need spare parts yet, and I'm pretty sure I won't ever I've been putting together a kit of spare parts that I'll be bringing out to our summer field camps. We'll be very far away from resupply so I want to make sure I keep some spares on hand just in case. I thought that the Stoeger's parts would be easier to get and perhaps a little cheaper. No luck though, back to plan A.
  4. Thanks for the info. I was hoping it would be a way to get spares for less $$$$. Is the P-350 a good gun? I don't know very much about Stoegers, if the price it right and they work I might consider one.
  5. Does anybody know if there are common parts between the Nova/Supernova and the Stoeger P-350? I was looking in a gun catalogue and they say that the P-350 uses a "Benelli designed pump action bolt". As far as I know, the only pumps that Benelli make are the Nova/Supernova. If this is the case, then the bolts should be compatable. Maybe barrels too? The guns look fairly similar, but I wonder if they'd be designed so that you'd have to go with the more expensive benelli parts. Any ideas?
  6. I see that a lot of shotshells are being labelled as "Nitro", which I'm guessing means they are more powerful. Is there really a difference in the type of powder, or is there just more of it?
  7. I'm thinking about buying a supernova tactical as a packgun for my wife. I'm wondering what the big difference is between the pistol grip stock and the comfortech standard stock. Does the comfortech make much difference in recoil? Does the pistol grip handle better? Thanks for any ideas.
  8. I'm getting geared up for the spring field work season and I'm going to experiment with buckshot for bear defense. I'm a slug guy and a buckshot newbie. What type of choke should I use? I'd like a fairly dense pattern at about 25 yards. Do different brands pattern differently? I have no idea what I'm doing so all suggestions are appreciated.
  9. Maybe there's something wrong with me but I can't find the email address for Benelli's customer service. I've checked all over the website and I'm stumped. If anybody knows it, please post. Thanks!
  10. I live in Labrador, Canada and put my Nova through ****. I mostly use this gun for camp protection against bears so I need it to fire the first time, every time. I must be up to a 1000 rounds by now and I havn't had a single jam or misfire and I use it in all weather conditions imaginable. I'm so happy with the Nova I'm planning on buying another one. (maybe the SuperNova this time, with the pistol grip)
  11. I see a lot of people buying extended choke tubes but I have no idea why. I've asked a few of my friends, but they all come up with different answers, most of them sounding dubious at best. Can anyone explain this to me? Thanks.
  12. Mine came pre-lubed with a thin coat of light oil. That seemed good enough to me, so I went out to my local gravel pit and shot off a box of light shells. No problems at all. Then I went home and gave it proper cleaning and lube. That worked for me, I've never had any trouble with the gun.
  13. If you're taking the magazine plug out don't forget to wear some eye protection. Those springs jump out really fast. Scared the **** out of the first time it happened. I'm lucky I didn't loose an eye.... or some teeth.
  14. Thanks for all the input. With regards to "shot of a lifetime", you're absolutely right but not because I might miss the trophy buck. I'm more worried about getting eaten by the big bear coming in through the door of my tent With that thought in mind, which type of slug has more stopping power? Those big 1oz. traditional slugs sure do a lot of damage at close range but having never fired a sabot slug I don't have anything to compare it to. Based on what I've read, sabots are lighter projectiles but go faster. I see that some have hollow points and others are designed to fragment. Does this make them more lethal than the traditional slug? I have no idea. I need something that can drop a charging 500 pound bear. Thanks for the info!
  15. A buddy of mine sold his shotgun and is now selling off all his ammo. I can get 10 boxes of remington sabot slugs for less than half the store price. The trick is, I've never shot a sabot slug and I have no idea how it will perform out of my gun. I don't want to waste my money on something that won't work. I have a 28" smoothbore barrel on my Nova and I shoot a lot of slugs so I've mostly been using standard Remington 3" slugs with a cylinder bore choke. The accuracy is good enough for what I need which is camp defense (bears,
