    You are shooting .005 less choke

    Real "choke" = constriction. In other words, the difference between muzzle diameter and bore diameter.

    That's ONE of the reasons a particular choke tube will perform differently in two different shotguns.

    What about gas seal around the wad -- last time I checked they did not sell over size wads.

    "overboring is not about choke."

    Where did that come from? I was simply explaining that one doesn't really know how much true "choke" they have unless they know the constriction relative to the diameter before the choke begins.

    Choke isnt just about constriction. Its about percentage of pellets in a given circle at a specific distance.
    You cant assume a tighter choke will pattern tighter than a barrel with less choke with a different or even same shell.

    Choke is about relationships...

    Reminds me, I was at PPC competition Sunday, into the bathroom walks a big LEO carrying a guncase he won. We watched him struggle as he straddled the urinal cradling his prize.

    We laughed when I said "bad place to say 'can you hold this for me"
