    Balls!

    My sawn off shotgun turned out to be 16g, not 12, as a result I need a new slug mould.
    I've been using the 12g Svarog Match slugs through a rifled barrel to good effect out to 50m, but this is more just for close range defence shooting against fruit so I was wondering if the ball rounds would work ok to about 25m?
    It's gonna go through 18" of smooth, unchoked barrel and Moment Of Watermelon will be fine

    Thoughts and opinions welcome

    No different to a musket. Round ball would be fine. 16 bore is .663 so any ball around that size which fits the bore would be fine. Iíve used round ball in 12g for years.
