Couple Nova problems

Lately I've been having a couple issues with my 20ga.


First, I can't hit longer clays with the sloped ramp no matter what I do to compensate. Honestly I don't understand the reasoning behind it. Why would they make the POI around 35 yards?


Also the action remains really stiff and sometimes doesn't want to cooperate. More than once a game it'll somehow jam during the cycle, and I really have to give it a good second racking.

hmmm... 20ga at 35yrds with light target loads and a MOD choke, I'd bet.


possibly - switch to the factory full choke and try - I'm guessing there, obviously!


what loads are you shooting (give total breakdown info of the load include manufacturer) and choke constriction...



[edit addition]


The jamming is more than likely caused by you 'short cycling' the action... make sure you cycle the slide lock to lock.
