    You're kidding, of course! Why would you want to do that?

    If you have a removable choke tube, get an unported one. As for the barrel porting, I believe people put too much emphasis on cleaning them. Clean the barrel like any other and wipe off any residue.

    A few passes with a "Turbo" brush will keep your ports clean.

    If you grind up 5 Ex-Lax tablets and put them in an 8 pound jug of powder, it will keep the port holes from clogging up. It also seems to speed up the powder drop in the press.

    Budro- 5 will do wonders. You can test that yourself by eating 5 just before you go to bed tonight. Try it and let us know how things came out.
