Short shot shells in a Benelli Login/Join 
Just because something is legal to do doesn't mean it is the smart thing to do.

I am wondering if anybody has ever tried the short shot shells in a Benelli Super Nova 12 ga.

Do they also make short shells in 20ga?


Integrity is doing the right thing, even when nobody is looking.

RST makes short shells mainly for old double guns. Yes they make them in 20 ga.

I don’t have a Nova or any pumps actually but I can’t see why a short shell wouldn’t work in one. The extractor is on the rim and how long the rest of the shell is seems inconsequential.



I'm gonna vote for the funniest frog with the loudest croak on the highest log.

I have no idea on a benelli, but my mossberg needed some help from the aftermarket to do it. So I think its an individual gun thing.

I’ve read where the Nova and Supernova don’t like them, but never tried them myself.

I have a Nova. Mine takes shells up to 3½" (at the cost of one less round in the magazine), but I don't recall the manual saying anything about short shells. These have a certain appeal as more of them can fit in the magazine (stock capacity is 4 x 2¾") while still being not something you'd want to stand in front of at close range. I guess either or both of us will have to buy a small quantity and try them out someday.
