16ga ammo is getting harder to find, but it is still available. midway and midsouth shooters supply carry it, walmart where i live carries some, not a lot. 410 is still pretty common in the stores here that sell ammo. 28ga is what is hard to find here though. i have a cousin who has to order his. most stores will stock what sells, 12ga and 20ga. as long as the gun makers make firearms in these gauges, the ammo makers will continue to make the ammo. also now with several gun makers making the 410/45 type firearms, i would venture a guess that 410 ammo sales will go up slightly. 16ga and 28ga will probably never see the popularity they had many years ago and ammo will more than likely have to be sourced from specialty ammo suppliers and from the internet.

After looking at the ones at Brownells, I made one. 20 ga. to .410. Tried it and it works fine but you have to push the 410 shells out of the adapter by hand of course, so it is slow. Don't see much use for them but thats what happens when you got a lot of time on your hands.

wow. feeling industrious lately? that's pretty sweet. is 20 to 410 the only that can be done? or say could you make multiples, like a kit of 12 to 20, 12 to 410, and 12 to 16? so you could shoot anything from a 12?

I have used some of these adapter. They are for single loading only and the 410 adaptor is for 3" shells, so it wont cycle through pumps and self loaders that are only chambered for 2 3/4" shells. These pattern well at 15 to 20 yards but I havent chronographed any loads to determine what reduction in velocity occurs with these short adapters.

I have found the exact opposite to be true. The 16 if anything, seems to be making a bit of a revival. It's easier to find ammo in stores in my area than it was when I first started hunting 20 years ago. Walmart and Dick's carries them and so almost all of the small shops. Cabela's has lots of different loadings. The last few years, my 1950's vintage Ithica 37 loaded with Fiocci #5 golden pheasant shells is my preferred pheasant gun.

sometimes these other sizes of shotguns tend to be more popular in different areas. their are always going to be some who will shoot these other sizes no matter the cost.
