is it 70mm or 65mm chambered? If the latter it'll take the Eley 16 Bore Alphamax with its 1 1/8 ounce load. Nice guns are "16s" in any configuration. 

I think you may want to edit Sir.

Could be dangerous advice as it stands.

Yes. That'll take STANDARD 2 3/4" cartridges.

 

But as you know (and subject anyway to choke) whilst it should be OK for also "standard steel" it will not be OK for "high performance" steel.

 

But please don't take what I and others say about steel in YOUR gun...seek advice from either Proof House or competent gunsmith

 

Enjoy your gun. Lucky man! It sounds a cracker.
