The sweet 16 is a legendary shotshell cartridge worthy of any wing shooting genre. It carries lighter and patterns better than any 12 gauge in its class, making it a beloved part of the duck blind and upland fields across America for well over a century. Our heavy bismuth load is meticulously handloaded with premium American and foreign made components. It shatters the competition in pellet count and pattern performance, and will be sure to make your next wing shooting adventure a memorable one with birds in the bag.

I'm using these shells on my next hunt. All the 2-3/4" 12ga. Shells I used have crushed the ducks!
