    This listing was drawn up by me to bring all of my relevant material into one gigantic free-for-all that just might either get a reader to be convinced or burst a vessel fighting off the logic.

    All the links are active at this posting:

    Some slightly off-topic (but entertaining and educational) stuff mixed in places. Posts are in basic order with older stuff first.

    You should be entertained for quite a while with this peek into the past posts.

    ps Remember to see the website for archive articles there.

    This is about short shells in long chambers, with some details about shot deformity etc to assist understanding.

    Note that after my posting about choke errors being disputed, BG posted a series of links to my various postings for reader enlightenment.

    You'll appreciate the pictures of the forcing cone and choke problem here:

    http://www.shotgunworld.com/bbs/viewtopic.php?f=83&t=116733

    And here when I mentioned the choke angle issue, Jugchoke came to the conclusion I was on target about chokes being off-target.

    And here SuperXOne agreed with my take on the choke problem, with only a slight hint of sarcasm-imagine that!

    Can't neglect the information about the Polychoke cracking and choke damage- could be mitigated by a longer forcing cone:

    And short shells in long chambers, redux plus:

    And RASTOFF even said somebody might need a pro like me to examine a bad choke tube hole here:

    Comedy relief break: see the cracked choke pictures.

    Some took exception to my treatise on chamber length and safety:

    http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=390434

    That's why I wrote this addendum:

    More short shell in 3.5" chamber factorization:

    More Komedy mixed with sparx.

    Here is where I had to fight the snipers in the bushes- and the treatment was less than kind- but the "opposing force" was around for only those 2 posts jibing me- gone and definitely not missed.

    Not a lot from my input, but damascus barrels blowing can be an interesting read.

    The comprehensive "crooked choke tube discussion, recognition, and lack of common sense to recognize a real issue" (along with a bit of gratifying defense of my posted input). Even EVButler got in an "attaboy".

    Not a bunch here, but if we are striving for completeness, ports and forcing cone comments R.E. recoil do fit:

    Latest iteration (3.5" chambers, 2-3/4" shells) and some admissions that excess chamber length could deform lead pellets when shorter shells were used in longer chambers- who knows, maybe it is possible to change a securely-held opinion. Certain I am that there were differences of opinion, if not intelligence.

    More cracked chokes- not cracked jokes.

    Jugchoke agrees with me again!

    Still not sure why choke tubes loosen even when heavily tightened?

    Roger, no, there are 35 unique thread sizes. Kirby said so.

    That's funny- I never thought of it that way.

    Actually, there are 35- so far.

    More to come, and those just happen to be the major examples- with more to come.
