Ahh the 16 gauge...still a favorite of mine! Was hunting with a A5 in 16 just today. Same with the 375 win. Was my grandpas and has probably killed more deer than I ever will in my lifetime.Like fine wine, with better bullets/powders, it gets better with age. Unfortunately there are more shooters today that wouldn't recognize real quality/performance if it bit them on the backside. It is among good company of other excellent calibers that have not sold well enough to keep mfgr's making them: 16 gauge, the 10mm was on deaths door, 348, 358, 7x57, 7-30 waters, 375 Win, etc.
