need short (16 ga. ) shells.....
      #118244 - 04/11/08 01:13 AM

Hi all:
I have a German BBF with a short shotgun chamber...would love to use 1B or slugs If birdshot loads found, I could exchange the shot load. Can anyone point my nose at a source for these???
Thanks very much.

Yes, RST is a good source for the shorter shells and they carry a good selections of shot sizes. I have a couple more names but I'd start with RST.

Another good source is Ballistic Products. They carry 2 1/2 inch Fiochi. If you reload you can use a roll crimp and cut off longer cases. I use the 16 a lot and have an old double hammer I do this with.

Buffalo Arms Company has short brass in all gauges. Excellent and fast delivery on my 16 bore hulls - to way up here.

Try to get hold of some boxes of Eley Grand Prix, if they are available on you side of the pond.
