16 Gauge Shotgun Shells

Thread starter #1
Saw the ammo availability thread and understand the shortages of the crazy times we're living in right now.

Just got a 16 gauge shotgun as a wedding present. Always wanted one - but realize that it's a less popular gauge and that shells might be tricky to find even during normal times.

Does anyone have a reliable store or website/distributor that they buy 16 gauge shells from?

In a normal situation, I generally find what I need at Bass Pro. Granted right now is far from normal...

In my area 16 ga. is not hard to find. Most businesses that sale shotgun shells carry 16's as well. I have a 16 ga. Rem. 870 and I really like it for quail
I wonder if they’ll be flats of anything for dove season? 16ga is worth reloading if you shoot it a lot. You can save a little and load what you want. Same goes for 28 and 410.
