PostForum: 16ga. Ammunition & Reloading   Posted: Wed Apr 11, 2018 5:17 pm   Subject: Flite control wads
During the muzzle loading era, charges of shot wrapped in paper and reinforced with fine wire were used to extend the range of loads fired from non-choked barrels. Different gauges of wire were used t ...

I believe in used but not used up cars, women, and guns. Let the first owner absorb the brand new toy cost of admission. Most folks trade off or up, because they get bored or don't do real well with t ...

I've tried 1 ounce to 3/4 ounce loads for skeet and informal clays in the past and have settled on my pet 3/4 ounce skeet and fun reload as the best one all around for targets out to 25 yards or so. T ...

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.

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 ...

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 ...
