PostForum: 16ga. Ammunition & Reloading   Posted: Thu Dec 14, 2017 7:00 pm   Subject: Green Remington Hulls
First, perhaps we should note the difference between the obsolete and the modern Remington green hulls. The obsolete ones which require a 57* primer have compressed fiber base wads. The modern ones ha ...

As others have posted, don't do it. Use only 57, 157, or other same size primers (look for 57 somewhere in the size code).

Be advised. All of these obsolete hulls are now at least 30 years old and ...

Even magnum shot pills up w/ feathers. I don't see it as an issue either. Might even be an asset since the pilled up pellets have a greater frontal area and could actually impart more shock.

A flush at 5 yards is a 15 yard shot In the woods of Maine that the only chance at the bird it lasts about 4 seconds.

All to often for early season grouse hunting, we're lucky if the window of opp ...

Many years ago (well maybe not so many), I was sucked into buying nickel plated shot by the overly flatulent claims from BPI about its much better performance. I was still a bit of a rube back then an ...

16GG,

I've never seen a mono blocked RBL barrel set in any gauge. It is my understanding that the RBL series of guns uses a shoe lump barrel set. Please see the video on CSMC website RE RBL constru ...

SKB machinery to CSMC, being used in the production of RBL's? That theory runs into a chronology bump in the road. Production of the RBL--which certainly has a strong SKB "heritage"--began ...

You already own a good 16 ga recreational trap gun. Your 16ga Browning A-5 1929 will do nicely if the barrel is 26" or over and is choked Mod or tighter. Your Ithaca Model 37 or Model 12 would t ...

From my previous post, "from my Citori". I said not a word about these loads in older guns. I wouldn't for the same reasons DC states. I wouldn't light one off in a very light gun either--un ...

For an SxS in that price range? One word says it all--Merkel. Just my opinion.

Any 16 gauge hunting gun is adequate for recreational trap singles. A longer barreled pump gun is ideal IMO, but there's nothing wrong w/ a 28 inch O/U either.

But if you intend to shoot registere ...

Like others have stated, I'd rather have a couple or four 1-1/4 ounce 16 gauge loads in my vest rather than run back to the parking lot for a 12 gauge in the hopes the bird will stay put long enough f ...

Frankly, 1-1/8 oz of #5 shot will do the job out to between 30 and 40 yards very well given the right choke selection, load performance, and shooting ability. There are about 175 pellets working for y ...

Sorry to confuse you Fred. CSMC named their 101 based O/U the Model 21. Don't ask me why. Probably a marketing strategy based on association, not fact. It's slick marketing spin to sell the gun to fol ...

An addendum to my previous post regarding the RBL shotguns:

YES, in 1996, we purchased the ...
