pretty cool

what kind of distance can you accurately shoot?

 

Since the sabot ammo is $2-3 per round, I don't shoot "groups", but I got bullseye at 50, 100, 150 and got on target at 200yds, first time out.

 

The Nikon scope has additional built-in reticles, to compensate for bullet drop.

it seems to have come oiled from the factory

do i need to do anything before i shoot it?

 

Check you user's manual, but...

 

Load, point and pull trigger should do it.

 

Oh, don't forget to have fun. ;)

hey MJ, its ALWAYS a good idea to thoroughly clean the new gun before shooting. im sure you already know this, but some people will buy a new gun, go to the range and start shooting and not knowing something could be lodged in the new barrel like a warning or instruction tag!! just sayin..:o

Nice shotgun. I have one just like it. I also have a Nordic Components extension tube (not currently installed), an Insight tube mounted light I keep around (again, not installed) and for certain occasions, an Urban ERT sling.

 

I personally like this gun, but have chosen to use my Mossberg 590 (converted to an A1, essentially) as I just dont dig the 4 shell capacity of the SuperNova Tactical. Yes, I could use the extension, but given that I keep a shotgun around for HD use, I seem to recall that having an extension on a completely "foreign" made shotgun, while using a pistol grip type stock (even though its a full stock), could be considered a no-no... from a legal standpoint. Not sure. Besides, I find the ergonomics/features/practicality of the 590 a bit more desirable for HD use. The Benelli is now reserved mainly for slug duty (as needed).

 

Either way, here is pic (albeit a bad one) of my old SNT setup:

Clean it first. Most new guns come from the factory with all sorts of sh*t on them. Best not to shoot it in that condition. Edited by shotgunNoob
