Can you SAFLEY fire a 2 3/4 inch 12 gauge shotshell out of a benelli nova pump in a 3 1/2 inch chamber?
im buying a 12 gauge and only eant to fire 2 3/4 inch and 3 inch shotshells out of the shotgun
Bound's hubby here:
You should be able to fire any shorter 12 guage shell out of a 3 1/2 chambered shotgun. You want to be careful because you'll have increased build up of plastic residue and powder fouling in the chamber area of your barrel. You also may have some timing problems when you cycle your shotgun. When in doubt, always consult the owner's manual, which you should be able to access on-line.
Good luck. Source(s): Master Class competitive rifleman

Yes, no problem. Like a .38/.357 magnum, you can fire the "little rounds" in the "big gun", but not the other way around; that's why they made the more powerful rounds longer.
You can always shoot a shorter shotshell in a longer chamber.
NEVER the other way around.
A 3 1/2 chamber can take anything from 3 1/2inches down to 2 1/2 inches (if you can find any) as long as they are the same gauge of course!
no, you need to buy the correct ammo, you'll damage the barrel
Not a problem, just be a little more cleaning.
