Ok My New Gun?

Recommended Posts

Ok I have a Benelli Ribbed Barrel with Double Bead. I'm wanting to use it for Turkeys.

All my other Plain Barreled Shotguns I have just looked down the Barrel, not seeing anything but the Bead, did very well including one Gun I could consistently hit a Soda Can at 50 yards with a Slug. I tried same with the Benelli, shot way low, tried stacking Front Bead on Back Bead still low. Yesterday put Turkey Choke in, backed off 20 yards, loaded with 2 3/4 inch, #6 Shot.

First shot I sighted down the Rib, had about an inch between Beads. Elevation was right but hit just to the left, shot again the same, Readjusted my cheek and way I lined the Beads up. Hit where I wanted.

Ok my questions. The Gun can shoot 3 1/2 Inch Shells, I'm thinking just stay with 3 inch Shells. I have a Choke Tue for Full Choke, thinking of using it. My Choke Tube says Lead Only, will Copper Plated be ok?

Thoughts and advice?

:D The Big Grin would stay with Front Stuffer.

I have a Benelli Nova pump gun I bought several years ago for turkeys that will shoot 3 1/2" shells and every turkey I've ever killed with it could have been just as easily killed with a 3" shell. The longer shells cost more to buy and hurt more to shoot. I'd stick with the 3" shells.

Same Gun thinking of just using the Full Choke. The Turkey Choke I have seems way too tight.
