    How many more holes does their extended porting offer over their std porting?

    I'm trying to decide b/w Proport Pigeon Porting and extended Angleporting on my new kolar skeet gun, going to try 12ga out of the o/u again after years of shooting a 12ga autoloader or 20ga through the o/u for 12ga and doubles events.

    Please no "I don't like porting and this is why" posts, there are plenty of those I can find on here by doing a search, just looking for an answer for my specific question.

    As one who has tried most of them,I consider Angleport the absolute best of the porting available. If I buy a firearm that is not ported it goes to Angleport. Period.

    Spend the few extra dolars on the Extended Porting.

    Their chokes are among the best in the business, as well.

    Skeet shooters may not mind the extra noise to no benefit...Hell, they were accustomed to Cutts Compensators in years past. If you don't want to hear why you shouldn't ruin the value of your gun, don't post here. Thinking porting will reduce recoil is mind over matter.

    Angleport chokes are very good and are currently the best buy available.

    I have Angle Porting on my Kolar ( I think this is their standard) and find it works great. Holes are big enough for cleaning and I've never had a complaint about the noise.

    I have my o/u barrel on my Kolar ported by Angleport and its the exended which gives you a few more cuts on each side and it works. I would only get the extended, the more the better. I tried other porting on other guns and I think Angleport is the best, don't plug and easy to clean.

    Good luck,
    Andy

    I guess if no one else will answer your question I will have to.

    You get 6 more ports.

    PS. It works but don't tell anyone.

    My barrels were ported by Pro Port about 25 years ago. When I shoot, my barrels, and the rest of the gun, moves down. Unported barrels move up after the shot leaves them. More ports would cause the barrels to go down more. For me, a little downward movement is all that is required. When the comb moves down just a little, some recoil is removed from my cheek. More downward movement would not remove more recoil from my cheek. More downward movement could be a slight problem keeping into the gun for the second shot of doubles.

    Shotguns just do not generate enough relative gas pressure for porting to make a noticeable difference. Just like porting in a a 45ACP comp gun was worthless due to the small volume of gas/bore size, so it is with the shotgun. Compare 14 gr of Blue Dot pushing a 130 gr bullet in a 6 inch 38 Super barrel with a load of 5.8 gr of 231 pushing a 200 gr SWC in a .45. The value of a 45ACP compensator was basically just the additional weight on the end of the barrel.

    A typical load of 18 gr of powder in a 12 ga barrel generates much less relative gas pressure than a high intensity rifle or handgun round. Porting a 12 ga truly is a situation of faith. But as long has people have the faith, the barrel termites will stay in business.

    I've always figured if there is the slimmest possibility it'll get me that extra target or 2 per thousand that I may not have otherwise, why not, its probably the cheapest equipment mod you'll ever have done anyways.

    Don't waste your money on porting...spend it on some good ammo or a couple of real good steak dinners.

    Port if you want it to shoot lower. If not, don't since you will never know the difference otherwise.

    Neil,
    Will you please elaborate on the POI being lower with a ported vurses non-ported barrel? I understand this in theory but your detailed explanations always seems to make things much more clear.

    thanks,
