    As I understand it (and it makes sense), one has to be BETTER with a smaller-gauge shotgun than with a larger: less shot, smaller shot pattern, etc.

    The British who led in early shotgun design, developed the 2″ 12 bore (“gauge” to us Americans) because they wanted a shotgun that would offer the superior patterns of the .730″ 12 ga size but with less recoil for older men and for ladies and young shooters. There is a reason why larger bores / gauges were preferred by the British from the 1890s through both World Wars – with superior patterns, the possibility of crippling game was reduced. Those reasons still hold today.

    Bring the 2″ 12 ga back! 🙂

    Aguila mini shells are almost that — but without the correct chamber.
