M4 vs Nova


Recommended Posts

Hope somoeone can explain this obsevation as I am a newbie shotgunner: We shot a Nova 18 inch barrel alongside my M4. Nova has fixed choke, no idea what. Used a modified in the M4. With small pellets ie 7 bird shot, the Nova patterns much wider than the M4 at 7 yards. But as the pellets got bigger, the Nova sigificantly tightened its group while the M4 was fairly consistent. Finally using 00 buck, the Nova seemed to pattern into a 3 inch hole...no spaces between pellets!. The M4 was still about 6 inches. We've decided that #4 buck was probably best for home defense. A 3 inch magnum left us stunned and both our shoulders aching for a few minutes. Thanks for any info.
