About those choke values on the GunBroker ad, no Sterlingworth 16 was ever choked .042 and .049, and those certainly are not IC and Mod as advertised. Who did the case colors? Wasn't a guy named Ed, ...

Note the larger diameter "band" just above the rime on these hulls. That marks them as "clinker busters". They are made with this enlarged section near the base to prevent them f ...

RobP - I kinda like cork filler wads. I cut them from wine bottle corks for the 10 gauge. I do have some in gauges other than 16 that probably came from BPI or somewhere like that. One could cut so ...

I have 2 A5's (I think) with that old style safety. I have gotten quite good with that safety. I don't understand the "suicide" concept; such safeties seem more anti-suicidal or more accid ...

I grew up in North Dakota, far away from any shooting facility, but fortunately always close to shooting of all kinds, thanks to my dad. Barnyard clays was one of the games. We were far enough away ...

Relax Mark MSM2019, you are in good company, and among friends, and I can't see there was anything uppity meant by the 2 shots vs 3 deal. It was only some musings of a shooter on the benefit of the t ...

Quite a nice A5! Interesting about this 3-Shot version - news to me. There is, of course, the Sportsman version of the Remington 11, but it has a less attractive-looking forend design from this 3-Sh ...

WyoChukar to MSM2019's "...cept we got no ruffies here", says: "Oh yes you do...I can tell you where. It's not that far away."

Try the Turtle Mountain area or around Pembina.

I did not find any loads in 16 gauge. I'm guessing you have done your search also. Looks like Hodgdon only has loads with WSH in 12 gauge and 20, and in WW-AA hulls. BPI lists some loads in 12 ga. ...

Yes, those are good points, WyoChukar and MSM2019. I am in your camp, and I sympathize. Still, I understand Hodgdon's choices. It's business. Will their decisions leave them with an uncompetitive ...

This seems to be the latest burn rate chart from Hodgdon: https://imrpowder.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/2020-burn-rate-chart.pdf
