Evidently they're out of powder for now. We're waiting patiently...

B&P 16's, 1 1/16 oz loads are pretty nice hunting loads IMHO. Might tide you over if you can't get RST's. I like the RST 7/8 oz loads for shooting clay pigeons.

The B&P 16 ga F2 is 1 1/16 oz @ 1280 fps. In a 6 lb. gun they kill well at both ends! I use them very sparingly for left bbl loads when the birds don't want to hold.

The RST 1 oz load @ 1200 fps is noticeably more comfortable to shoot as you would expect. Thankfully I have a good supply.

The B&P 16 ga F2 should be a fine load in heavier guns as it has the same ballistics as the 12 ga 1 1/16 High Pheasant which is excellent.

Whatever you think Brittany Man. I hope you guys don't buy any of them because they are in short supply at times too.

[quote=buzz] "Whatever you think Brittany Man. I hope you guys don't buy any of them because they are in short supply at times too."

Just stating the facts, not knocking your choice of the 16 ga B&P F2. What I think is that in a 6 lb. gun the B&P 16 ga F2 load with the velocity adjusted to 1250 fps @ 3 feet has 20 foot pounds of recoil compared to 16 foot pounds of recoil for the 1 oz RST load @ 1200 fps. That's a 25% increase in recoil which is significant to me.

The difference would only be 2 foot pounds if the B&P F2 load velocity was at a more reasonable 1200 fps. While I'm thinking the additional 1/16 oz of shot helps I don't think the additional velocity increases down range killing power enough to warrant the increase in recoil.

It irritates me that we currently don't have more choices in quality factory hunting loads @ 1200 fps in all gauges but the 16 ga is especially slim pickings.

And thus the reason so many of us 16 ga enthusiasts reload. I shoot targets, dove in a week, and quail with 3/4 oz of 8's, and smile every time I pull the trigger.

I shoot quail, dove & sporting clays with 3/4 oz. of #8's in a 12 bore, 2.5 inch shell (RST's). Wish I had a 16 to try that load in.

The 16ga F2 is not a low pressure load, while the length is 2 5/8" the pressure is 9857psi. So it's a bit hot for vintage guns proofed for 3 1/4 Ton.

They do thump you, but they do work great in a heaver gun if your not shooting a ton of them as others have said.

Good Luck!
