    I used some GaugeMates (12-28) Sunday for skeet. Here's what they look like after a TOTAL of 50 rounds fired - 25 per barrel.

    I have 8 more boxes of Winchester AAHS shells left for this trial. Looks like I ought to get a large supply of O-rings before going back to the skeet field.

    Soaked for 24 hours in PROLIX then a few minutes with a brush on a Dremmel. They look good as new.

    What end of the barrel did you put them in? LOL.

    Try wrapping some of the Teflon tape made for gas pipes around the o ring. You should be able to preserve the life of the o ring for a few rounds of skeet.

    I use Briley side kicks and have not had to replace anything after a couple
    thousand rounds.

    Larry,
    I'm the guy that sold you those! I used those GaugeMates in my LC Smith for two rounds of skeet and they sure didn't look like that when I got done. All I had to do is wipe them off with a rag and they looked just like they did when you received them from me.

    There are different size O-rings in the zipper pocket of the pouch; maybe give it a try with the larger ones. It sure looks like excessive gas leakage that burned up those rings. Oversize chambers in the gun you used, maybe?
