    Briley tubes in Sweet Sixteen

    I did it and like it. My gun is a beater so value took second place to utility. See my post in thread below on Sweet 16s. Briley's products are first class and their service is the same. Go for...

    Suggested solution

    I formerly used my Sweet 16 almost exclusively for roosters. It did not pattern steel well with its modified barrel (steel required on public land). I sent the barrel to Briley and had a set of...

    This says it all. Ammo is the least of any of our expenses. Buy the best you can.

    Best size steel

    I recommend you try both 2's and 3's on a pattern board at the distance you shoot your first shot. Let the pattern board settle the question. I think you are running unnecessary risks of cripples...

    Spirit Lake Area

    I live there on W Lake Okoboji (about a mile and a half south of the Northland Inn at Vick's Corner). It was a better start than the past 3 years for sure. The advice on the eastern part of the...

    I happily shoot moderate smokeless 2 3/4" loads in my 2 5/8" chambered Damascus Parker. The barrels are un-pitted and as nice as they were when made in 1903. The roosters are just as dead w/...

    I agree. I primarily hunt roosters w/ 100+ year old Parkers- both steel and Damascus. I use either Hevi-Shot classic doubles or Game Bore Tunsgsten Matrix when I am forced to use no tox. They...

    I too have used the 16 with excellent effect. I have hunted with it in Europe (Luxembourg and Germany) and seen it kill (by others) huge wild pigs with slugs. I have a JP Sauer drilling in...

    I like South Dakota's attitude towards pheasants, pheasant hunting and pheasant hunters. Pheasant hunting is practically the state industry over there. I am not surprised about 16 ga shells being...

    We had some melt off the bare ground bean fields and chisel plowed corn. But the deeper (better) grass and sloughs etc were so well filled in and covered w/ multi layers of snow and ice a week of...

    It is hard to say but I think we did. How much is a matter of opinion. It was practically impossible to hunt roosters after about the first week of December. Mostly due to crusted over snow cover....

    I live in NW Iowa. It has NOT been one of the more mild winters up here. While not as brutal as last year (-41 at Spencer in late Dec 09), we have had a lot of -teens and a few -20s. We have had...

    It is a great show. Regrettably, they put too many rows of tables in each of two rooms. It makes the isles very narrow and frequently jam up w/ visitors. It makes it hard to sort the wheat from...

    Honoring the Fallen Game

    I hunted regularly in Germany and Luxembourg for 7 years in the 1970s' and 80's. It is a deeply respected custom to honor all harvested game. Generally all cloven hoofed animals and some rare birds...

    Give the 16 a try

    I too share a deep respect and affection for the 16. I use two Parkers and a Sweet 16 A-5. They are all deadly. The A-5 is a little clubby compared to the SxS's but kills a lot of roosters. About...

    Uncle Buck-

    You didn't write it; I did. Looks like I have to change my name in the forum to prevent confusion. What can I say?

    I'll do it when I figure out how.
