    I shot my best ever cock pheasant with the small bore twenty eight... It was a huge January bird that flew along the line and he was high and five guns to my left didn't touch him and that little gun with a light cartridge flipped him over in full flight and my Chessie found him well in the thicket.... Memories that stay for life.

    I used a 32" 28bore and loved it ! For some reason the 28 seems to kill far better than the numbers would suggest?

    Its too short for me but otherwise I'd be wrestling with my conscience and trying to convince myself I need another gun !
    Right where's those stones , I'll start !

    I never really got the barrell length issue thing. I went from 12-20-28 and going back to a 12 feels cumbersome and slow. I have killed january pheasnts with the small bores with greater satisfaction and cleaner than a 12. Apparently the guys that shoot a lot including most of the Royals have changed to 20/28's because theY are accurate and more fun.

    I used to shoot a 28g in the states, perfect for quail. But also really good on pheasants. The reason is that the 28 g has a very efficient shot pattern , with little shot stringing. I read up a lot on this gauge because I was so impressed with it and the science proves the reality.

    Totally true Biffo.. 28's hold a longer and tighter pattern hence the often evidence is the birds head folding back and in some cases the bird in full flight cartwheeling backwards. Never seen that ever with a 12.'

    i'm 6'4" and 18.5 stone with arms like an orangutang and longer barrels just work better for me , I tend to poke with shorter barrels , technique I know but why make it harder for myself?
