Although more popular in Europe than the US, the 16 gauge shotgun still sees use among American hunters and homeowners who want a balance between the fine handling of a 20 gauge and the power of a 12 gauge. It is not used for skeet or other clay shooting, but performs very well against various types of birds and other small animals.
Winchester ammunition has been made in the USA since the mid-19th century and enjoys a superb reputation for quality and reliability.
