    One more vote for 16ga.com. There have been a couple of new wads for the 16 made in the last few years by both Down Range and Claybusters.

    "Field loads" is a pretty large area to cover without knowing what kind of field you will be in,i.e., skeet, trap, pheasant, quail, spotted owl, etc.

    You will have to narrow it down a bit to get a good answer.

    I own several 16's and, just like any other gauge, I pick my load to match the target but 7/8 oz. is my favorite.
