I am sure that the new Sweet will help, but until the 16 becomes a seious choice for a clay target gun, it will never gain a lot of popularity.

As a hunter I might shoot 4 boxes a year, maybe a few more when crow hunting is good.

For clay targets I reload over 5,000 in 12 gauge alone plus shoot new ammo at certain events. Add another 2,000 give or take for the 16. That is 7,000 plus rounds for clay targets and less than 200 rounds for hunting........and I am a fairly low volume clay target guy.

A 6 lb. upland shotgun is completely inappropriate for most people to shoot any amount of clay targets with and expect to excell.

This is where the issue of the 16 ever being popular lies.
