I posted the same question in the classic guns forum so if it is not allowed and needs to be removed I apologize. I have a 1950's 12ga SXS made by Gallyon and Sons. I am new to the shotgun community and especially to SXS. I was just wondering if I could get some advice on what shells i need to be looking for. It is marked 2 1/2" nitro proof 1 1/8. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated, especially where a good place to source this ammo.

Thank you in advance

Gary N

I believe that means it has 2 1/2" chambers & is proofed for 1 1/8 oz. of shot. The gun must have been made some time ago as I don't know of any 2 1/2" chambered guns being made in recent history. That doesn't mean it is not a quality gun. I am not familiar with that maker. 12ga. chambers today start at 2 3/4". RSTShells sells them ( & there are others that sell specialty ammo.
