Default 10 ga.

I see no need for 10 ga. 3.5 12 ga, you can shoot 3 different rounds. 2.75, 3'' and 3.5. So called experts recomend 2.75 # 8 or # 9 bird shot. This is at close range. Use 3.5 00 buck for out doors. Followed by Slugs.

Default Ithica Mag 10

In the 1980's Ithica made the mag 10 and the mag 10 roadblocker if I recall, heard of them but never seen one in the flesh.
Had a coworker that stated his 10Ga Marlin Goose gun was all the shotgun he needed.
Ole Bruce had lots of 10Ga stories from his gold camp day's down by Nome, Ak.
Kinda neat idea a 10Ga semi auto.

This topic is almost a year old, but since it was resurrected...

Never real found a use for 10ga.'s, especially with all the designs of 12ga. loads. 8ga's would be interesting though-

indeed the 10 guage does exsist and so does an 8 guage. the order from big to small goes 8,10,12,16,20,28,410,9mm,.22 cal the 9mm and .22 are actual bullets with no lead. there is a glass shell filled with #9 shot where the bullet fits into the brass. they are not used for anything more then killing snakes or rats. also the 8 gauge is no longer in production the only ones you will find are very very old black powder long guns. which are muzzle loaders. probably not safe for firing. the 10 ga. is still fairly common but will soon go out of production also i presume. the cost for one shell is over 1 dollar. a box of 25 is about 40 dollars. very expensive and impractical. do a little research on the 10 ga. look it up on and then look at the shells. also type in 8 guage shotgun and you will have a page or so of antiques. if you have any questions just p.m me. thanks

8 gauge is still used in foundries to blow the slag off the side of the pot. I believe Winchester still makes 8 ga "foundry slugs"
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
