Hey y’all 

This is my first season ever turkey hunting and so I was wondering what would be the best load and choke combo to use with the benelli nova? I am a complete newcomer to hunting for them so I am wondering what would be my best options especially with limited budget..

Thanks and good luck this season!

Hi Winston 92,

 

I've had very good luck using Winchester Longbeard XR #5 in 3.5" in my 12 GA Benelli SBE3 out to 35-40 Yards. Closer in at say 15-20 Yards Federal Grand Slam #4 or #5 in 2 3/4" has also worked well. The longer the shell the more recoil you will feel so 3" shells in #4 or #5 are a good compromise. As far as choke selection goes, I use a FULL choke every time I'm turkey hunting. Hope it helps and good luck to you too!
