16 gauge shotgun shells are available in different shot sizes and loads to suit different uses and preferences. Common shot sizes for hunting include #4, #5, #6, and #7.5. For target shooting, smaller shot sizes, such as #8 and #9, are often used.

The most common load for 16 gauge shotgun shells is 2¾ inches, although there are also 3-inch shells available for those who require more power. The shot charge weight ranges from around 1 ounce to 1⅛ ounces, depending on the specific shell.

When purchasing 16 gauge shotgun ammunition, it is essential to select shells that are appropriate for your shotgun and intended use. It’s also important to follow local laws and regulations regarding the possession and use of ammunition.

As always, it’s recommended to consult with a knowledgeable gunsmith or firearms expert for specific advice regarding the suitable ammunition for your shotgun and your specific shooting needs.
