Hi Everyone: Just found this on another post for those of you who need "SHORT" shells. If you know of other manufacturers and their web sites, just PM me and I'll add to this;

www.polywad-shotgun-shells.com

SuperX1 (Galen) just informed me of:

www.ballisticproducts.com Not only do they have "short shells" but reloading items for the same!

New update from NE Md 12

www.westleyrichards.com Look in the "Gun Room"

www.woodcockhill.com

www.bandpusa.com

Galen, (X-One) was in Cabelas in Mitchell S.D. and went into the Gun Library and found Gamebore manufactured in England. these are not in the Cabelas catelog. so if your near a Cabelas go check them out.


Again thanks for the heads up guys. Keep the up-dates coming! We all appreciate it!


Regards Dave

Thank you very much. I have bookmarked several of the sites, and will order the shells I need when I return from a trip to the west coast.
I have been looking for this info off and on for the last two years

Rocky Mountain Cartridge will make shot shell all brass cases in any legnth that you need. They provided me with 4" 28ga hulls for my Purdey 28ga double rifle. They are great folks to deal with.

Thanks Dave...Those are some options I wasn't aware of!! But just for your info...B&P doesn't offer a 16ga 2 1/2" that I saw....But the other sources seem good at a fairly reasonable price!!!

RST (rstshells.com) has 29 loads listed for 2 1/2" 16 gauge shells. They will give you pressure figures by phone. Most if not all are suitable for vintage double guns both fluid steel and composite barrel guns.

have used Polywad Vintager, Spred R and Double Wide all 16 gauge....all were priced reasonably and they were great to deal with....wouldn't hesitate to order from them again.

From this box in the most recent Wards Auction, it appears Winchester was making 2 1/2 inch 20-gauge shells in the U.S.A., in the 1960s, but I've certainly never seen them for sale here.

I wonder for what part of the world they were for?

I have an old FOX C grade made in about 1910.
I use the B & P High Pheasant loads in it with outstanding results on So Dak wild pheasants.
Highly recommend if you need short shells!

What are the cheapest 2-1/2 16 gauge shells in the U.S. right now?

RST and Polywad, in my experience.
Must buy case quantities.
RST will mix shot size within same order of 10 boxes.
I really like the RST shorties in 1 oz. #7 for quail.
