    I would have to do some research to see if an 8 gauge exists ( a 10 gauge definitely does). I do know that a 28 gauge exists for sure. The 28 gauge is very uncommon and takes a back seat to the 12 and 20 gauge shotguns. The latter are more common and ammunition is widely available.

    I don't know if they still make it, but a few years ago, October Country was selling a 8 gauge muzzle-loading double rifle. I handled one at a Frontier Show. It was BIG.

    Years ago my dad shot an 8 gauge single shot, needless to say he only fired it once!

    Both true. I fired an old 8 Gauge double back in the Sixties. Don't remember what brand it was, possibly 'mule'. 28's are becoming more popular with classes of skeet and trap for those guns. Light recoil, pricey ammo.

    Rugar, Marlin, and I'm sure many others sell a 28gauge. Not sure about the 8 guage, I believe it was a late 1800's shotgun.

    I seem to remember something about 6 gauge shells being used to clean the crud out of smokestacks. I saw a beautiful matched pair of old 4-bores, but they were round ball black powder rifles.
