NO!! Not without having the chamber reamed out by a gunsmith. I have yet to hear of a 3" 16 guage. I would certainly hesitate to use anything that produced higher chamber and barrel pressures than what was considered standard when the gun was made.--Jack
Actually the shotgun uses 16 gauge shells i have the same shotgun
the shotgun takes a 2 3/4 shell
Air soft shotgun shells are the size of 12 gauge shotgun shells.
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.
It will be marked on the barrel.
The Bay State .410 shotgun fires a .410 gauge shell, the smallest of shotgun shells. The shell itself is around 3 inches in length.
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!!! 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!!!
Yes, if you eject it into a roaring fire.
Should be marked on the barrel
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.

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 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.
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.
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.
The value will vary depending upon the specific shell. Go to gunbroker.com or gunsamerica.com and look through their classifieds. You'll find old paper shotgun shells for sale by the box, and by the shell. Good luck.
30-300 yards depending on load, angle of fire, etc..
Sorry- that is a serial number, and conveys no information. If the barrel is not marked, you need to take it to a gunsmith who will measure the chamber- not only for gauge, but for the correct shell length. Just because an unfired shell fits does not mean it is the correct shell. And it is not a rifle, but a shotgun.
Obviously, 16 gauge. However, they were amde in a couple of different lengths. Oldest used a 2 9/16ths inch long shell, later guns used a 2 3/4 inch shell. Have a gunsmith check the length. Dangerous to fire wrong shell.
A properly loaded shotgun shell slug load, yes.
Wats a federal 12 gage bullet size 7½ inch shell doing around me in a 67H Springfield savage arm shot gun wat all bullets do I safely use???
