Load for 16 Gauge-Is 20 grains of dense smokeless powder and 1 ounce of shot too heavy a load do use in a 16 gauge H & R Blue Steel barrel gun?
No, it is not too heavy, as this is the standard 16 gauge load. The standard powder charge for the 16 gauge is 2 ˝ drams of black or bulk smokeless. The standard loads of hsot are 7/8 ounce and 1 ounce. It is best though to not use any heavier charges in a 16 gauge single gun of any grade.
