Hello gentlemen,

I am wanting to buy one 8 gauge shotgun shell for my collection and I was wondering if anyone had an extra that they would sell to me. :cool:

Sorry, I used up my last box in Dodge City last year during the cattle drive.

Dude an 8 gauge?

I feel like a failure now, why did I settle for a 12 gauge.


ok guys, someone hurry, start an 8 gauge vs bear thread, so I can see if it's viable for home defense. :rofl:

I can't even find a good gauge comparison pic. This is the best one so far:

Took me about 4 seconds to find this with an internet search. Hopefully they have some in stock.

I wonder what the standard charge weight is in an 8-guage shell? 3-ounces? 4? The recoil must have been severe.

I have never heard of a "B" gauge before. How big is it?

YOU should be able to access an 8 guage cartridge where they use a kiln gun.

On gauges bigger than 8ga, the choices are limited and the same with rounds. Most of these rounds are brass or paper shells.

On the question about the sizes, look here;
