28 gauge: Magic or Myth? A Break in the Action

The twenty-eight gauge is having a moment. Every few months, I see an article raving about the super clay-obliterating, bird-smashing powers of the 28g gun. From what those authors say, it’s all you need to hunt everything from doves and grouse to turkeys and geese.

But how much of all this is BS? (Hint, I say a lot). Last month I joined Field & Stream Editor Phil Bourjaily and Ryan Doughty from A Break in the Action to discuss.

28 gauge: Magic or Myth? A Break in the Action: For the single shotgun or single gauge hunter – is the 28g. or the 20g. the superior choice? Shotgun and shotshell manufacturers and shotgun columnists have been boasting some pretty impressive claims about the 28g. Are they realistic or is this just a way to encourage you to look over the new 28g shotguns they are selling?

Listen in as we cut through what’s fiction and get to the facts about the 28g as a legitimate, do-almost-everything choice.
