I to have Ithica 16 guage that my grandfather gave me. What a great gun. When it comes to ammo it can be slim pickings. I try to buy what I can when i find it. I know you can find it over the internet. I am currently trying to find some non toxic for duck season. Only thing I can find is hevi shot classic doubles. Current price is $40 for 10 shots.
I was in my local Dick's tonight as they had Remington Gun Clubs on sale for 25% off. Naturally I was a bit late to the dance but they did have a case in the back. Guy says he has another case of Remington shot shells back there but didn't think they were Gun Club - he goes back and brings it out and was a whole case of Remington 16 guage slugs. I didn't look too hard at exactly what slugs but I sure was surprised they had a full casde of 16 guage on hand.
Rio came out with a line of Bismuth shells this year. They have a 16ga loading available for half the cost of Classic Doubles. Both NatchezSS and Able Ammo carry it.
I haven't tried it in 16ga as I have a "few" cases of Kent TM 16ga and the now defunct Bismuth Cartridge Co 16ga on hand. I did pick up a couple boxes in 20ga that I'm hoping to try out later this year.
