    does anyone know any place that sells 16 gaige lowbrass or if it is even made?
     
  2. I don't think they are even made. The 16 generally operates at higher pressure to deliver a comparable load to the 12 ga at close to the same velocity. Even the cheap low velocity target loads have high brass walls. I have about every brand of 16ga in my ammo safe and none are low brass. I can't say they aren't made but I am sure they would be hard to come by.
     

  3. You just dont see alot of 16s anymore, Remington put out some 870s a year or so ago and a local shop had them at a very reasonable price, I had a H&R a few years back that I picked up used for a cant pass it up price, it came with a box of Federals that if I remember right was high brass.
     
  4. Federal sells the low brass game loads. I used them all dove season long last year. Fins and Cabelas is where I bought them from.

  7. I don't know about low brass, but I can usually find them at my local Meijer and Walmart -- sometimes I find them for $3.99 a box and will normally buy them out
