You sure it's not 3-1/2" ? It should be 3-1/2. I had two 10 gauge SxSs. Ma Bell Specials - with the right loads, they will reach out and touch someone. See if you can find some Kent Impact shells. Probably shouldn't put steel thru those Full chokes.

Virginian is correct. The most common "short" 10ga shell was the 2 7/8". However, some loder European guns had 3" and even 4" chambers back in the BP days.

To my knowlege, only RST, Fiocchi(not out yet) and Hull are offering 10ga 3 1/2" non-tox ammo that is not steel these days. Be prepaired to spend about $3-4 a shot for them.

There is still some federal Polymer-Tungston out there but it was only made in #5 & #6 shot. In short, if you want to shoot the big gun, you need to look into reloading.

No, do not run steel through those chokes. If you are going to shoot much of the 10ga, you will want to reload. Buy some Nice Shot, or Bismuth. expensive, but the Nice Shot really works.

The 10ga really makes a good duck gun. Can load anywhere from the 3.5" big boy down to 2 5/8" shells. A good 1 1/4 or 1 3/8's really puts it on those ducks!!
