I bought a 12 gauge gun for 2" shells. Where can I buy the shells? Or do I have to start reloading again?...Geo

I always wanted one of those but have no idea now as to how to feed it, other than handloading. RST did load for them, as did many others (Gamebore was one).

Perry: They might, but they're mostly for law enforcement so 00 buck would be the standard load. Good catch tho...

Welcome to the club. What did you buy?

I also bought another one this weekend also.

I am reloading for my ammo. and I don't think there is any viable alternative. There are some rumors of factory loads in the recent past, but it seems they may have been high pressure, and not what you want for these guns. Reloading is pretty simple, however, and I have made up jigs to do most of the chores quite easily using once-fired discarded cheap 2.75" hulls.

Aguila makes "mini" shell in 12 gauge, but I don't know if they are low pressure: https://www.aguilaammo.com/products/12-gauge-minishell-7.5-shot


I have become addicted to English hammered shotguns to the detriment of my wallet.

Brent, I bought a Powell from Birmingham. <https://auctions.thegunrunner.com/l...side-shotgun-26-barrels-letter-hard-case> I'm getting recoil sensitive in my old age and the 2" alternative sounds good to me for doves and quail.

I don't think the Aguilas are appropriate due to high pressure, but I'll check further into that. I think RST sold them for a while so maybe they can scrounge up a case or so. They do not have them advertised on their site...Geo

I saw that one. Interesting gun. You got a good price. I bought one from Poulin's.

These little guns have a bit more recoil than you might think, because they are so light weight.

If you decide that reloading is in your future, shoot me an email and I'll send you the info I've amassed and can show you what I've been doing, although I've just gotten started.

GLS has been a huge help in getting me headed down the right path. KYJon and a few other has also been helpful. There is a small cult following for these things.
