And if so, would you shoot it through a sweet sixteen? It has a 26" modified barrel that seems to be made to order for hevi-shot if the barrel can take it.

kent makes a load for the 16gauge in tungsten matrix called Impact and it sells for $10.99 a box of 10 at http://www.macksprairiewings.com  the 1 1/16oz load in #5 shot is getting it on at 1315 fps and the 1 1/4oz load in #5 shot shot is at 1265 fps.  They also make a great lead round for the 16gauge... Kent's web addy is http://kentgamebore.com/  hope this info helps.

i forget about this post myself :)  forgot to mention that it's not a turkey load.  it's for upland game/pheasent hunting... of course no one makes a good turkey load for the 16ga which is a shame... hoping to get a Remington 870 in 16ga next year.... also hoping that since Remington is making the 16ga again that the ammo will be easier to find....

I with you on it being a shame that there's no 16ga turkey loads! I'm still gonna get some of the shells you recommended so I can use the sweet 16 to shoot ducks.
