I've noticed some cowboys shooting factory loaded BP in their 12 gauges. Has anyone seen BP factory loads for 20 gauges. Need supplier or manufacturer if any??

Ned and Zip,

I need to 'fess up and tell y'all that I was mistaken about the factory BP ammo. It's not,3-D,but Ten-X that is now producing BP ammo. Go to the Ten-X Homepage (http://www.ten-x.com) and check the price list.

Sorry Ned,no 20 gauge,just 12-at $24 for 50.

Cor-Bon calls theirs US Cavalry Black Powder Ammuntition, waterproof Paper Hull, Scattergun Shot Load. 10 @ box for $8. Only in Twelve Gauge. And I think I have also seen Federal with some out, only in Twelve Gauge. But at one of the matches, I'm pretty sure someone was shooting 20 gauge BP. Maybe they was home brew loads. Any other brands out there??

I don't remember the name of the company, but I believe that Shotgun news occasionally carries an add for black powder shotgun shells. It seems to me they were an English brand and quite expensive, but I think they may have had 20 guage. You might want to consider loading them yourself however. I have been loading them for a couple of years now and it's not too difficult and a heck of a lot cheaper than buying them.
