20 ga popularity for HD?
I am reading many posts about the 20ga and this is why I chose a SxS Double 20 ga for us.
1 With bad sholders, the wife can take the recoil.
Price of a used gun Cheap for a 20 ga!
Nearly the same shot load and good velocity in the 20 ga.
20 ga double with 26" bbls is almost the same OAL as an 870 with a 20" tube! More velocity from longer bbls in the 20ga!
I would have opted for a 12 ga if our 63 year old carcases were in better shape. BPDave
