Spent the weekend at two different clay shooting facilities in middle Georgia,
Cherokee Rose Shooting Resort outside of Griffin, Ga and Ocmulgee River Gun Club just south of Macon, Ga. A very pleasant time was had at both!

Oh, shit yes. I have a press dedicated to the gauge which I consider the ultimate upland load.

Andrew Jones “Sporting Shotgun Performance” is the current bible on interior and exterior ballistics of shot shells. His work suggests equivalent loads are always best is larger bores. Still I want a 16GA, but haven’t fallen for one yet or found one built in a proper 16GA frame. Safe is full of 12/20.

Seems like many South Georgia quail plantations won’t let hunters shoot anything larger than a 20ga. Supposedly, it is for insurance purposes.

I guess being shot in the face with a 20ga is less painful than being shot with a 16 or 12?

What guage gun was Dick Cheaney using when he discharged a round into the honorable Mr Wittington (I think it was?). As I recall from the news reports, it was either five or perhaps seven pellets that found purchase in the unfortunate victim! Ouch. :icon_scratch:
