As said welcome aboard Oscar. Always glad to hear about hunting/shooting in other parts of the world. Sounds like they really make yall jump through hoops just to get a hunting gun. Be careful 16's can get in your blood. I sold a few so I'm down to only 7 myself.

I think I'm going to settle this 16-gauge shotgun, my wife is already tired of so much junk as she says. With the weapons I have I can hunt around the world, from small birds to large elephants, so now the money I save will be to hunt hehe. Thank you very much for the welcome, I am now going to try to study for a while, I want to promote myself in my work.

Best regards,

Oscar.

Hi if you mean what size pod has triggered once the cartridge, they are 70 mm (2 3/4) and for the use that I will give will be rabbit hunting. Other data of interest are the number of pellet is 6 having a diameter of 2.5 mm and shot load is 28 grams.

Hi, go seems that 16 is unforgiving, yesterday I shot five rabbits and managed to bring down three, I will get a picture, I will apologize for the gore of it, but I had gutted the rabbits to prevent the heat corrupt themselves. The 16 gauge I was surprised and delighted me.

The 16 has left me amazed, just has kick, its noise level is much lower than that achieved with 12 gauge his way leaves you speechless. Great.

Oscar.

Very Happy More folks should get to know the surprise and delight of using a 16ga...hits like a 12 but carries like a 20. Congrats on your success with bunny hunting; 3 for 5 is quite good.

I apologize for the time I 've spent without writing . Actually I did not have many interesting things to say . The other day I managed to bring down a hare with a 28 gram cartridge and pellet 7 , who had previously managed to raise his crouch my dog ​​Simba ; Breton two years.

Hi, I did two years since I beat down a hare. This time was also Simba who managed to run the hare, but then managed to bring it down with a semiautomatic shotgun Benelli brand 12 further on that occasion also managed to shoot down a rabbit up by my dog Simba. Then my dog was 6 months old. Sincerely in Spain too scarce hares and hunt tradition here is rather than shotgun greyhounds but hey if you get one at step one is bitter sweet. Sorry for the English, I am using the google translator.
