    Last year, I read an article in one of the shotgun magazines discussing the advantages of a barrel with an aggressive flare. According to the article, the flare causes the pattern to pancake and arrive at the same time, as opposed to conventional barrels which have an elongated pattern.

    Anyway, I can't find the article. Did anyone see it?

    If you are lucky you will never find the article.

    From the post at the link above. Change 'reduced shot charges' to 'shot string' and you have the same thing:

    "When you want to scrawl something on the subject of reduced shot charges you are faced with an early choice. You could go out, shoot some patterns, report the results with a little plate of Olympics/F.I.T.A.S.C on the side and figure you have done your job. But that would require leaving your keyboard and perhaps even your apartment, which is why it’s so rarely seen."
