    Cleaning out a cabinet in the garage and found 13 boxes of these. Score!

    But they smell a bit rank :(. I guess I’m going to take a can and see if they still fire.

    They were bought at TG&Y. I didn’t even know Federal AE went back that far!

    NICE! I have a very old 16ga and a decent stash of ammo for it. I've always liked that gauge.

    I hope they are still good. Try finding copper plated field 16GA loads these days!

    I’m a huge fanboy of the 16 ga.
    When someone says let’s go kill some dove, pheasant or quail, the Sweet 16 comes out with the Citori’s, Remington’s and Winchester’s staying in the safe.
    Had a fellow member come on to a stash of 16 ga a couple of years ago. Bought two cases.
    Since it says duck, it has to be since 1996 when it went steel shot? Still shoots hard at that age.
    I’m down to a few boxes, so going to have to buy some. Federal still makes a premium 16 ga shell, but it’s not cheap.

    Here's the whole stash. I'm in the process of stacking the AE in cans. I thought it would free up an ammo can for other stuff but it don't look like it. Oh well, the my Sweet 16 is going to get dusted off.

    While my absolute favorite is my little Beretta 20ga Parallelo I use my "fowl weather gun" just as much. My stash -

    It’s a long, long story from a few years back at Little Sahara. 2011-2013.
    We had a forum for classic 3 Wheeler ATC’s and had meets at Little Sahara with folks coming from Georgia, Oregon, etc. for three days of checking out each other’s builds and mods as well as some serious riding on the dunes. Biggest year was 2012 with about 300 folks showing up bringing over 70 classic three wheelers. (Pics are on this forum)

    In the evenings, over adult libations, stories of old races won and lost, harrowing trail rides, etc. abounded as one might expect.
    One of the owners had a beautiful three wheeler fully chromed in full pink plastics, another in full OD green, another fully chromed and midnight blue, etc. Took a semi flat bed to get all his trikes to the meet.
    He had a little lisp and it was Easter weekend.
    As the night progressed, and the stories grew, we heard a sweet 2 stroke fire up and take off. For the next 20 minutes or so, he was on the pink machine in his wife’s sun dress terrorizing the camp ground which was gravel at the time while screaming “fear the either bunny! Fear the either Bunny!!”
    Well, we commemorated the event with his own sticker later on to never let him forget.
    Sadly, the forum became so infected with viruses that it finally shut down a couple of years back.

    Keep your eyes on the classifieds. I have another stash of 20GA. IIRC there's a few #5 and #6 pheasant loads and possibly a hand full of waterfowl loads mixed in with the bird loads. I can't really recall it all right now but I plan to dig it out. I don't even own a 20GA.
