    I think its 12 ga bismuth cartridges they will be producing....and selling the bismuth shot for the sub gauges, so people who still want to use them and can reload will have some sort of alternative to lead.AFAIK.

    Its a welcome development at least it will give shooters with an older gun a opportunity to take it out occasionally for a hunt........

    From the sounds that the ammo company’s here in the uk are making about there new biodegradable wads, and moving to steel the choices should be improving in choice of ammo. So it should be heading your way in a few seasons

    Falcon 2 3/4 32 gram no3 steel in a o/u for me, a friend has a hulgu sxs and uses the black cloud ammo. As an aside he can reload nearly twice as fast as I can, the action of a sxs is so much faster than the o/u.

    find some 30-32grm loads.....and add some weight to your gun.....there is 11oz of lead shot up hole in buttstock of my pump...it really makes a difference.
