Mossberg 190
 
I just picked up a Mossberg model 190 for a good price. It's just like the gun my Dad used to let me shoot as a kid before he passed on, a 16 ga. bolt action. Since it was made from 1955-57, what's a good load to shoot through just for practice, don't want to tear it up & don't want to tear my head off either.

With the exception of steel shot, it should be fine with any off the shelf 16 g load. 16 g was not always 2.75 inches- early ones were 2 9/16ths- but the shells changed in 1927- you should be fine.

Thanks, it's been a long time since I've shot one of them, didn't know how dangerous or more powerful loads were today!

The pressure specifications for loads has not changed in the intervening years since the 1950s.

Since I have a minor addiction to Mossberg 22s (I can stop any time, you know...) and have a few of the Mossy shotguns, this is a site I like-

Scroll down, look for the green shotshells. Your gun is in there.

I know all about that addiction, I suffer from the same one. Hard to quit though, every time I want to another old Mossberg seems to find it's way to my door. And then into my safe! :D

That is one of my favorite sites C3, I have learned quite a bit about my old bolt guns, and my 200K there. great site.

hachet, enjoy your new to you 190. One question, is it a K,T, or D variant? Just curious is all. I still have my grandfather's old 185-ka that is now being shared between generation 3 and 4 in my family. I love those old bolt shotguns, and it is an honor for me to still be feeding my family with the same shotgun that was keeping the family fed over 60 years ago. Enjoy re-living your old memories of time with your father, and making some new ones with your new old shotgun.

Ya know I wish I could tell you, it only says model 190 on the barrel, I don't see any suffix. However I did find an extractor that was broken on it, the dealer didn't tell me about. Sorry it took so long, this forum seems to be getting harder & harder to navigate.
