Anyone know where I can get 16 gauge ammo for an upland hunt?


Recommended Posts

I inherited a few 16 gauges from my father who passed recently and would like to get out to Bent Creek with one before the season is over but can’t find 16 gauge anywhere anyone have a site or someplace local that has a few boxes? Don’t need anything fancy any 7 or 8 shot will do. 
 

Thanks in advance

If they are "old" guns then you may not want to shoot current manufacture loads in them. Especially if they are SxS's.

And, depending on the age you may want to check the chamber length ! ! !

Try RST [ http://www.rstshells.com ] they make loads that are as effective as the new stuff an easy on the older barrels, actions and particularly the stocks.

I buy my shells from them for my guns, that are old like me....   but haven't recently. Two years ago they were shipping to NJ.

I'd be safe if you don't know and check them out. It would be a shame to damage an older gun.

PM me if you have any questions..... I live near Bent Creek and have a chamber gauge and also know about old SxS's to be able to check them out a bit.    Plus I have some,  not much in 16ga in various lengths.

MGHhunter great offer I really appreciate it and will send you a PM!

The gun I want to use is an Ithaca Lefever Nitro mag everything I’ve read it is safe to shoot and 2 3/4 shells. I’m not duck hunting with it so no crazy steel high velocity loads or anything.

No problem, got your pm and talk to you on Sunday

I was just at skips outdoors in stockton weds & a guy asks if the have any 16 ga.  They're picked pretty clean on ammo so I was pretty surprised when he said they do.  Guy says I'll take a box.  I say I cant believe they have any 16 ga.  Guy asks how many boxes they have, guy says 10, buyer says I'll take all of them.   I say good move..get them while you can.

I think its the typical asshole move anymore, eff the next guy right, that's exactly why we are chasing our dicks to find ammo:down:
