Actually the shotgun uses 16 gauge shells i have the same shotgun

Air soft shotgun shells are the size of 12 gauge shotgun shells.

The longest shotgun shell that you can safely use in your 12 gauge shotgun are 3 inchers.

it is not safe to fire 16 gauge shell in anything but a 16 gauge.No shells will interchange with other gauge guns since a 16 gauge shell would fit in a 12 gauge chamber, I would think you can do this.

The Bay State .410 shotgun fires a .410 gauge shell, the smallest of shotgun shells. The shell itself is around 3 inches in length.

NO!!! A 12 gauge shotgun takes only 12 gauge shells. A 20 gauge shell would fall into the barrel and get stuck about half way to the muzzle. You would be in for a nasty surprise when you put a 12 gauge shell behind it and pulled the trigger!!!

Most 12 gauge shotguns are capable of shooting the 3.5 inch shotgun shell. It fires at around 14,500 PSI.

The best shotgun shell for shooting ducks is a 3 to 3 1/2 inch 12 gauge with number 2 shot.

No it does not. The Browning BPS Hunter is a shotgun. The "410" signifies the shell size (guage) in this case .410

In a shotgun shell, it tells the number of round pellets that combine to make a linear inch.

Sounds odd...what exactly is your question? shotgun receivers can be attached to different sized barrels. It is also possible to lower the gauge shell that a gun can handle by having a large gauge barrel fitted with pipes that lower its gauge.

A 12-gauge shotgun with a shell already coming out of the muzzle into the back of your skull

This is a shotgun with an internal barrel diameter (called the "bore) of approximately .410" which shoots a shell which is about .410" in diameter. It is the only shotgun shell size that uses this convention. A 12 gauge shotgun, for example, does not have a bore of "12". A 20 gauge shotgun has a smaller bore than a 12 gauge and a 10 gauge has a bigger bore than a 12. Gauge size is based on the number of lead balls of the bore diameter which are required to make a pound (16 ounces). 10 balls, 12 balls, or 20 balls.

The danger is that the shell will fall forward, blocking the barrel, but allowing a 12 gauge shell to be loaded. If that is fired while the barrel is locked, the gun will likely blow up, destroying gun and injuring the shooter and innocent bystanders.

The gauge of a shotgun is the way the size of the bore is measured. In this case, gauge is the number of balls of lead of that diameter that would equal one pound of lead. So, a 12 gauge would take a ball that weighs 1/12th of a pound and a 20 gauge would take a ball that weighs 1/20th of a pound. In other words, a 12 gauge is a larger shell than a 20 gauge.

Yes it can, however it is not as simple as lengthening the chamber in the barrel. There are in fact 12 different modifications that must be made to the shotgun to have it work properly with the longer shell. Contact the Browning service dept for a quote. Browning is the best source to have this done.

If your shotgun is a 12 gauge pump, then you have a High Standard Model 200 (Flite King). The standard 12 gauge shell is a 2 3/4 inch shotgun shell. It can be anything from #8 birdshot to a deer slug.

I would use any shell except steel shot shells in your 1961 vintage browning shotgun.I would check to see if your chamber is for 2 3/4in shells,or for 3in.shells.Other than that I would use whatever shell fits the game that you expect to hunt.

the first shell is pushed fully into the side loading port this shell will operate the action and be fed into the breech the second shell loads into the same port but sits there until called for this gun will only cycle 70mm long shells they are easilly obtained

Depends on the gauge of the shotgun (should be marked on the barrels) and the length of shell it was made for. Some of the earlier guns used shorter shells than are now standard. Just because a shell fits does NOT mean it is safe to fire. If your shotgun is not marked with a shell length (like 2 3/4) you should have it examined by a gunsmith that can check shell length.
