    I just purchased a nice old 16ga sxs and would like to start reloading that gage. Can anyone suggest a source for 16ga hulls? I don't see much out there.

    Merry Christmas to all!

    You can get new Cheddite and Fiocchi 2¾" from Precision Reloading, Grafs and Ballistic Products.

    You can get new 2½" Fiocchi from Precision, and they also have some once-fired Remington Sport hulls.

    Grafs has Fiocchi Paper 2¾".

    Precision & Grafs also have the very excellent Gulandi and B&P wads.

    Reloading 16ga is easier than it was only a few years ago.

    I like loading Fed 16ga hulls. You may find it is more cost effective to buy a flat and use the empties as you shoot them up.

    If you become hooked on the 16, you should consider joining the 16ga Society. Lot of good info, load recipes etc. Occasionally there will be hulls for sale there and there are currently Activ hulls for sale. I Haven't checked as to availability of Recipes for Activ hulls.
