I have an old sauer 16 ga. with hammers 27 1/2" full and full barrels and it weights less than 6lbs.the shots will be between 30 and 50 yards.I was wondering what brand and shot size ammo out there would be good for this?......Thanks
Mine were usually taken with a 165 gr ballistic tip from a 30-06 with 60 gr of H4831 behind it. Targets of opportunity while deer hunting. I have killed a few with a 20 ga Wingmaster and dove loads. But I was just shooting their heads off with an unopened shot column.
Blue grouse are not much bigger than a pheasant. 2 3/4" 16 ga loaded with #5 or #6 should work well.
