    Anybody had a scratch inside their barrel? My buddy's is about 3 inches below the choke threads....very small though...almost unnoticeable. Dont think this effects performance but curious how this happens.

    Certain types of shot like Hevy shot, if it gets between your wad and barrel will scratch it otherwise its only a guess.

    No. None. I will say this scratch appears to be very, very minor....so much so that I actually thought it was debis/ fowling stuck on the inside. Only way I noticed it was that a piece of barrel mop got snagged on it when cleaning.

    I wasn't concerned until you said that a small piece of mop got snagged when cleaning. That scratch is not the start of a small crack or spiit is it? I would look at that area carefully to be sure.

    Thanks guys.

    Yes, this is my cocern as well. It's like a very small scratch has pushed up a piece of the barrel. Guess we need to get this thing checked.
