    I own a 555 in 28 Ga. and it is my "Go To" grouse and quail gun; I like it very much.

    I really like the Kent Bismuth 1 oz. load of #5's out of either my 20 Ga. or 16 Ga. The Kent TungstenMatrix work great too, but they are "pricey". If shooting steel (seldom), I use the 3" load of...

    I believe #3 or #2 are a better choice in steel, but I have grown fond on the new Kent Bismuth #5 in my older guns and in 20 Ga. TungtenMatrix by Kent is still the best non-toxic, but...EXPENSIVE.

    I believe Dickinson markets a 16 Ga. SXS through their Custom Shop and I believe Fausti offers one, as well.

    www.16ga.com is a great site and a good resource.

    Actually, the Ringneck's frame in 16 Ga. was gauge specific, but NOT the barrels; they were indeed out of 12Ga. barrel stock. I'm disappointed if CZ/Huglu has taken to making the Sharptail's frame 12...
