    .665 Jelly head with win supreme 5's 3.5" works for me out to 40yds. Haven't patterned it past that.

    I've had a kicks gobbling thunder .660 in mine for ten years. Shoots excellent lead patterns. Its my lead gun and have never shot any heavy shot,hd, or hw in it though i know it will shoot just as good. three inch or three and a half in 4,5 or 6 shot all shoot good for me. Ive even shot some 2 3/4 6's in it that would kill easily to forty yards. The 4's and 5's will get you past forty easily.

    With a benelli keep a tight choke and stay with smaller shot sizes if possible. They have a narrow barrel to begin with. My SBE loves a .650 and lead #5. YMMV

    Thanks guys. Keep them coming.


    I'm gonna go to gander mountain Saturday and see what they've got. Probably not much.

    I'll probably try the Jelly Head and Hevi Shot magnum blend combo if they've got it. If not I'll just have to order that combo or a different one. I really wanna try the magnum blends though.

    I think I still have a comp 'n choke for a nova. My nova shot 6" left with any turkey choke, so I sold it. Shot fine with the regular chokes. Sold it. If I still have the comp 'n choke, I will sell it to you for $10 if you come get it.

    Sounds like you could save me about $50. I'll take it. I read somewhere that benelli actually recommends comp n choke. Let me know if you find it and I'll come pick it up saturday.

    OK. I'll look for it tomorrow. I believe it is in my gun cabinet somewhere.

    We are wiped out mostly on ben/ ber chokes at gander with a spike in sales for tenn season. No jellyhead for 12s. Lots of hs undertaker left and for 24.99 they patterned awesome in my dafs and brother nova. Dad killed several at 45 plus. Mine had a jellyhead 655 and shot ok. Killed alot birds past 40 just not that great of pattern. Hope this helps and good luck this spring.

    I may try one of those and that comp n choke if he finds it. Do you know if they have magnum blends?


    Are they any other sporting goods stores in bowling green that may have some chokes?

    Thanks man. But that's so expensive. Just 5 shells right? I hope they work.

    Need to check Uncle Lee's / Wing supply. Had the undertakers on sale for 12.99 and usually the best price on the hevi shot magnum blends. Plus they provide this forum for us.

    Looks like Wingsupply sold out of the 12.99 ported undertakers but still have the non-ported for 19.99 for most guns.
