I own a Browning Gran Lightning in sixteen gauge. Where can I find 7.5 or even 8 pellet sizes? I want to shoot informal skeet with it.

Check your local Walmart. I was finding boxes for under $8 this past June when I visited Montana. Here in Southern California, Walmart stopped selling ammo as of a few months ago, but I’m okay for a few months of 16 shooting as I stocked up a bit. Save all your hulls. 16 is definitely worth reloading if you can find a decent deal on a 16 press. I’m actually looking for a Mec single-stage in 16 gauge.

Many sources for 16 gauge shotshells.
Not many, if any, skeet specific of course but, they are around.
RST had some 10s, if you feel the need.

Reload, reload, reload, that is the only way to keep a steady flow of 16 Ga ammo. Last time I checked, they were god awful expensive to buy.

I can still find 16 high brass hunting loads but the lighter stuff is all gonE in my neck of the woods. I ordered 5 boxes low brass 7 1/2s from Midway, not cheap but cheaper than The $19 a box high brass.

Find yourself a few flats of Remington Game Loads - No. 8 1.0 Ounce Game Load in 16 gauge, than start loading them.

Yes, those Remmys are great to reload and will go several times through the loader

Not sure where you’re at. In the twin cities, I’ve been to Scheels lately and they had quite a bit of 16 ga ammo.
