    They tried "trapping" the target. That's what happens and that's why it's such a bad idea to shoot that way....just sayin'.

    Looks like some so called barrel guru was trying to back bore it, the bore looks more square then round. Maybe they were using reclaimed shot.

    I bet they mixed the powder lots.

    Used two different kegs for one shot and 7-1/2 instead of 8's.

    I would say, i'll bet there was no union label on it, but I don't want it to been seen as union bashing.

    Not manufactured by Krieghoff. That's a barrel problem not a receiver.

    The metal was not hot enough when they poured the heat. Mike.

    Dateline Washington D.C.;

    In an executive decision which came as no surprise to anyone other than the American people, President Obama, after discussion with his unofficial advisors and collection of Czars, determined unilaterally that the U.S. military was vastly over-funded and made them cut all their supplies in half. When asked by the press the reasons behind his decision he stated "America has too much and owes the world an apology".
