i have been thinking of reloading my 16 ga with black powder or pyrodex (leaning to pyrodex) im getting some full brass hulls and will be priming them with 209 primers. but what i want to know is if anyone here has ever done this. i know how to do this with 12 ga but its my first time with a 16 ga and i have never done reloading besides 12 ga is this same manner. anyone have any proven loads? i will most likely be using bb's as shot.

Fabricate a punch of the right size to cut card wads and felt wads of the right size, use proper charge of black powder...1 dram equals approx. 27 grains, put card over powder, fill to right level with felt wads, then shot, then another card wad, seal with hot glue gun...done!( I believe that 2 1/2 drams is a minimal load in the 16)
