  1. AmsterDan,

    There is no reason that you should not shoot slugs through your Supernova. As you said, your best accuracy should be with chokes of modified and less. Try different loads and see what shoots best for you. Also, be sure to use better sights such as a red dot, slug scope or high visibility glow sights to take advantage of the slugs. The Fed Tru-ball loads shoot very well through my chokes in my Supernova. Good luck and have fun!

    Sure, in most relatively open chokes, slugs can be used. We are talking about CYL, IC, LMOD and even MOD will usually give good accuracy. Please keep in mind that it is always highly recommended to try a number of different shotshell slug loads to determine what shoots best in your gun. I have always found that the Fed Tru-Ball loads shoot very good through most chokes! Another highly recommended item is some kind of red dot optic, shotgun scope or very good high visibility sights to take advantage of this type of load. Slug loads would be what I would have in bear country!

  3. pete.jake, your Montefeltro should shoot fine with choke constrictions of CYL and IC constrictions. My BlackBore HunterPro HV chokes for hunting work great for buckshot and rifled slugs with wads. I call these constrictions Close Range (CR) and Mid Range (MR).

     

    It is always hard to get a "one for all purposes" type choke, so try to narrow down what is most important to you. Buckshot is usually for relatively close-in work and the slug reaches out a good bit further. Slugs especially do better for the shooter if there is a better method of sighting then just a vent rib barrel. A red dot sight helps in that department.

     

    Good luck!

  4. Don't want to be a blatant promoter here, but might I suggest taking a look at the BlackBore HunterPro HV chokes! They are fine for steel usage and will prevent the wad from interfering with the shot column to eliminate flyers. As has been said, the choke used depends on the load and distance (close in, circling the decoys or flying over for a look)! Pattern the choke you use and your favored loads to see what works best.

  5. tpaturkeyguy, HH is correct and I would add that the .680, .670 and .660 (in those ranges as every manufacturer seems to be different) constrictions ar the ones most often used in turkey hunting. The two biggest variables in finding the right combination are the shotshell and the shooter! That is why you need to get a box of each shell you would like to use and see what patterns best. Try the less expensive shells first as I have had great pattens through my chokes (you can check a few patterns on the BlackBore website).

  6. Greenhornet, you might go to a local Wally World and get one of those Limbsaver recoil pads with a sleeve that slips on to the stock over the existing one for a short term solution. Exchanging your stocks for one of the Benelli Comfortech stocks (in case your shotgun did not come with one) might help a bit. A fitted mercury recoil reducer (Benelli has one) could also help.

    Perceived recoil is always a tough one to diagnose and cure. Sometimes, the stock you have just does not fit you properly and getting that looked into by a stock expert may be the biggest help you can get. I do a lot of testing with all types of shotshells and the guns that seem to be easiest on me are the gas guns. Good luck!

    Of course, I have them for the M4's as well. This also means that the Benelli Crio-type are also available for the Benelli competition shotguns and hunting shotguns.

    Thanks for your interest and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  8. I had excellent accuracy with the Federal Truball LEB127 RS load through my M4. You should get your best results with IC and LT MOD chokes. You can check the patterns I have gotten on http://www.blackborechokes.com under Tactical HD. Just so you know what you are looking at, the targets center is 3" with the clover leaf holes the slug holes. The other holes are from the "wad" of the Fed Truball load.

    Godd shooting!

  9. Colorado and stealle,

    I have had to withdraw my initial offering for a discount to this forum because of rising stainless steel and S&H costs! I am still leaving the original price the same and will try to keep it there as long as possible. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks,

    Mark

  10. Welcome to the Benelli Forum, Varnius!

    As for the chokes, as Stranger says, you need to tighten the chokes to a "snug" fit, but not so much that you really have trouble getting it loose! I always recommend that a shooter get into the habit of checking the chokes for tightness after a box of shells are run through the gun. It just takes a minute and you are protecting yourself and gun doing that. All chokes will shoot loose to a certain extent after some amount of shooting.

     

    If your choke becomes too loose, there is the danger of the choke coming off the sealing shoulder in the barrel with combustion gases bypassing between the conical portion of the outside of the choke and the inside of the barrel. In extreme cases, the choke can be blown out of the barrel with some resulting damage to the barrel.

     

    You should also use a "little" oil or choke grease on the threads in the barrel and chokes.

  11. M4Madness, I understand what you mean now! In the HunterPro HV for turkey, get the ER (Extended Range), which is .700" constriction or IMOD. It will also look great and serve as your tactical choke!

    Thanks,

  12. M4 Madness, any of the BlackBore chokes in Benelli Standard can be used in your M4. The question becomes which choke(s) works best for the applications you have in mind.

    I hate to put you off, but I recommend reading over the BlackBore website and then let me know what specifics you would like answered, which I would be happy to do!

  13. Hattles is correct and thank you Vague for mentioning BlackBore Chokes!

     

    M4Madness, your M4 takes the Benelli Standard threaded choke (the same as the Beretta Mobilchoke). At this time, I have the choke in HunterPro HV ER (Extended Range) which is .700" constriction. In Tactical HD, I have it in EER (Extra Extended Range) which is also in .700" constriction. This is like an IMOD, but tends to shoot tighter because of the extended parallel section.

    Please feel free to call or email me!

    Thanks,
