I've finaly heard back from Gamebore on their 2 1/2" 16 gauge cartridge. They stated the pressure to be 8250 PSI. Would any of you folks know if this ammo is safely within the limits of my Mod. 20?
I've got about 3/4 case of this stuff and since it won't pattern in my A5, it just sets around collecting dust.

Do you know the year it was made and what proofs are on it? Is the face tight?

According to Allen at Allen's Armory the YOM is 1914.

Not really sure what I'm looking at as far as proof marks go. On the bottom side of the left barrel there's a 20, and on the lug block between the barrels there's a small H, bottom side of the right barrel is SAIJDVIK. Other than that there's the Husqvarna Crown H and Husqvarna, and something I take to be the import mark KEBCO with a two digit number I can't make out.

The 20 and H are both found on the water table of the frame also.

It is tight on face. No wiggle.

As long as the gun is tight on face, there should be no problems shooting the 2 1/2 inch shells. The crown over script H is generally taken to be the proof mark.

Thanks sbhva, now I'll feel comfortable going out to dust a few clays in preperation for live pigeons.
To be honest this type of action and lock-up is totaly new to me, as are the lower pressure requirements.
Now all I need is a nice day to get out the foot trap and a case of bluerock.

Asphalt, the 2 1/2" Polywad Vintagers I've been shooting are supposedly 7200 psi and they don't strain the underlever gun at all. Actually feel quite mild with a nice pattern. The Husky unerlever alsways sparks interest at the Sporting Clays range.
