    To reduce recoil and muzzle jump. Place an equal amount front and rear to keep balance of gun the same. Increase amount of weight front or rear to change balance as needed to improve swing. HMB

    Or provide weight to match, or at least begin to simulate, having a tube set in the barrel when shooting 12 gauge.
