Went grouse hunting this week, when it wasn't raining anyway.
Walked a WPA and threw in some steel loads in 16ga. (which are not very good loads)
I had plenty of non-tox with me but in 12ga and at this particular time, had the 16ga so just threw in the steel that I had.

Pointed sharptail, got up at about 25 yards, I shot him and feathered the bird like I shot a pillow, he just kept flying until out of sight. Never have I put shot on a sharptail and not had it go down (although have had some that were real good "coasters")

Dang steel. I know, my fault had I put it where it needed to be, would have knocked him down, but I don't always do that.

Had I loaded nice shot for the 16ga this trip, would have gotten that bird, I am convinced.

Ordering some 7.5's today.

Sorry to hear about the bird but I am glad to hear the faith you have in Nice Shot.

What loads do you usually use in your 16?
