    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:

    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.
