O MY GOD!!!! i cant believe people really hunt with these monsters. what a freakin cannon. this guy had an old single shot break over thats an 8ga.he said he cant find ammo for it, i wouldnt shoot it if he did. his grand dad made a board with all the different gauges of shotshells on it.from 410 to 00 gauge. they run as 410,28,20,16,12,10,8,6,4,2,0,00.he said that from 6ga down were mounted on the nose of a boat and used to hunt geese on lakes up north. you guys up north ever heard of such??

You can see vids of the large gauges on you tube. The kill en masse.

The large gages were from the days of the market hunters and like Nikolai said typically mounted as a punt gun on a skiff or boat. Do some web searches on this stuff its kind of interesting to see how they used to do it.
