It is just called "Twenty Gauge" although there is a shotgun pictured on the box, I think in an attempt to mean that the name has nothing to do with the size of the wire. This is Perfect Circle brand by JW Harris welding products but it was recently bought out by Lincoln and that may have something to do with the difficulty in finding it right now. I recently had an E-mail conversation with Sales at Lincoln and got this reply

"Thank you for taking the time to contact us and bringing to our attention
your concerns. I'm glad to hear that our Twenty Gauge is such a well
received item, but not so glad to hear of the difficulties you, and others,
are having in finding distributors that carry it. As a Harris district
sales manager, it is my responsibility to educate the distributors and help
them promote our products, and obviously I have dropped the ball with
Twenty Gauge. As I am always looking for different products to focus on, be
assured that Twenty Gauge will be one that gets a good amount of attention
with all of my distributors.

Going forward, here is our webpage featuring Twenty Gauge:

Please note the three part numbers: TGE2, TGE3SP, and TGE5. If you give
these part numbers to any Harris distributor, they can contact us and have
the wire ordered for you.

Again, thank you for taking the time to contact us. I apologize for the
difficulty in finding our products, and I assure you that our distributors
will get the training and support they need to promote Twenty Gauge to its
full potential.
