Have an ideas? Something you would like to share? Maybe a gripe or a complaint?
Email them to me:
I just sent you an email. Please let me know if it doesn’t make it to you.
I have just inherited a 10 gauge Neumann Bros side by side. The same gun is shown on this good gun alert http://www.dogsanddoubles.com/2013/12/good-gun-alert-a-10-gauge-3-12-neumann-sxs-shotgun/ , mine is not in as good shape as the one shown in this post. I am hoping to use the gun for waterfowl, do you have any suggestions on shells or where to find reloading materials? I assume I can;t shoot steel through it.
I wouldn’t put steel through your gun, and I would stay away from most modern 10g ammo.
I suggest using Bismith of some other kind of non tox. RST and RIO ammo both offer non-tox substitutes, and they may make them in 10g. Google them to find out. Gamebore may offer something, too.
The important thing to keep in mind is that your gun was not may to shoot high-pressure shells (like the kinds guys shoot through 10g auto loaders). So stick to ammo designed to be shot in older doubles.
Good luck with your gun — oh, and I would have a qualified gunsmith look it over before I did anything with it.
