Hello Gentlemen (and Ladies):

It is my honor to welcome the 16 Gauge Reloaders group to what I hope is a new, happy home.

I currently load for an Arrieta 803 and a AyA 53 in 16 gauge, plus a couple of Sweet Sixteens. The data from the group has been invaluable. I hope to provide a permanent home here.

Being in Cali, I am working with bismuth now quite a bit for my old gals.

We’d love to hear about you, and your 16s!

Again, welcome to the ‘Fire.

Rick Bin

Excellent! Mine are pretty plebian, a Remington 11, an 870 for steel shot and an ancient Excel single barrel that I inherited from Dad. Story was a neighbor who was packing up to move to California during the Dust Bowl days gave it to him.

Great!
I load for a Dickinson Estate SxS, Cheesy's M37 Ithaca, and 100 year old German made SxS by Oscar Will.
I started out with a Mossberg M500 pump as a kid, then switched to 12 ga for a long time, down to 20 for longer and finally back to the Queen of the Uplands. Wads and hulls can be problematic to find, but I don't see myself changing now.

Thanks Rick for taking us in. I reload for a couple of browning A5’s and a Stevens model 285. Hope to see the 16 loads up and running. Would also like to see some sub gauge stuff added. Thanks again

Are there any plans to host the spreadsheets here? Maybe a truncated version of the many overlapping files

I'm so glad this forum is up. I love my 16 and have always wanted to get a loader for it but at the same time only shoot a couple boxes a year hunting it. Time to change that.

I have utilized most of the spreadsheets, going back to the original put together by Chukarman. They are in MS Excel, which I refuse to buy, but easily dragged and dropped into the free Open Office spreadsheet and function perfectly there. I prefer the version that organizes by hull, but others may prefer the ones that go by wads and powder.

Thanks to Rick Bin for hosting us here.

Hello Rick
Thank you for hosting! I agree, the data from the group has been invaluable. I load for my Fox Sterlingworth.

Thank you Rick. I have a Sweet Sixteen, a Model 12, two Levefer Nitro Specials and maybe something else I have forgotten. This is going to be a great forum.

I will import and post the data later today when I get to my PC. The spreadsheets will be stickied on top.

Glad folks are starting to make it in.

oooo check me in too!

SxS Stevens 315, Win M12.

And just yesterday I learned that I've been reloading Cheddite 2 9/16 hulls,. They are on their last trip into the chambers. Time to figure a load for the 500 Herters, with the case ofsp16s that I was gifted. That or saw them down to 2 9/16.

Also, Fiocchi high brass reloads don't work in my chambers. I cranked down the sizemaster, still no joy.

It took a few tries, but I'm in.

Rick, Thanks for taking over the reloading data/forum.

Looking forward to some reloading this winter now that the rains have returned to the Pacific Northwest.

Stevens 315. Purchased by my older bro to give to the younger bro in 1971. $20. I have since made the stock, and sand blasted and nickle plated the frame. I was trying for the flat stainless look. Those two "utility grade" barrels are nearly heavy enough to keep me from stopping my swing on Clays. Vs the M12 which is light as a feather.

Thanks Rick. I have several 16 gauges including two older doubles, a model 12 and a newer Browning Citori O/U that I load for. Looking forward to learning some new stuff.

Currently I don't reload for any shotgun but recently got my grandfathers Ithaca SxS, don't recall the model but it's and old single trigger. Shot my first rabbit with that gun but concerned with using it since it's old. Plan to have a gunsmith check it out. May end up with Dad's Mod 37 Featherlight too.

Thanks for hosting this Rick. I have three of them, a model 16 with a dial a duck, a 1938 Ithaca 37 Skeet, 26 inch IC, and a Browning Citori Lightning. I load on a PW 375.


May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face;

the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,

may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Rick, we all at 16 ga society thank you for the kind welcome. I believe all 16 ga users or want to be will find a great wealth of experience and information from the 16 haters. People will find their is a great supply of supplies because these guys have already found them and will share it all.
Again than a great shooting.
