Reading another thread made me think, I should ask the questions to clarify some stuff. To begin: I'm pretty much clueless on a few topics with shotguns. -is it steel shot or lead? Does it matter? -can I shoot a "rifled slug" in my smooth barrel? (I only have a smooth bore barrel). -what the largest H.D. shell I can shoot out of my turkey choke and not ruin my gun/choke? I have a benelli supernova I recently bought and intend to use it turkey hunting. It's also my HD gun (only shotgun). I have a Indian creek choke tube and 3-1/2" hevi shot mag. blends. http://indiancreekss.com/choketubes.html#strike I also bring my gun up to my bedroom after hunting so is there a shell that I can just load it with after hunting and not worry about changing out my choke tube that would be sufficient for HD? No, i'm not buying another shotgun for HD. Thanks for the clarifications!
