I'm Buying a Benelli Nova for turkey and pheasant hunting, what performance differences can I expect from a 26" barrel and a 24"? Thanks.

You will not notice any difference in the performance of the speed of the shot coming out the barrel.

The difference will potentially be in the swing and handling of it.

The 26" barrel will likely swing smoother/ balance better for the pheasant hunting than the 24" barrel.

I'll "third" that recommendation for the 26-incher: you'll swing better on pheasants, and your ears will be at least two inches further away from the mighty muzzle blast of a 3-inch magnum turkey load.
