    Pick the one that is not rusty with pitting...and no bore obstructions.

    Less felt recoil that way!

    Bob M,

    To me, this is one of those items on a long list of items that fall well down the ranking of "what's important to trap shooters."

    Gun fit is probably one of the highest on the list.

    A lot of excellent shooters have shot a lot of excellent scores with Perazzi guns whose bores measure about 0.723"

    If your gun really fits you well, and you shoot it well, I don't think it will make a target's difference whether your bore is 0.723" or 0.750"

    I agree with the gun needs to fit you, but you can get, in most cases, a large bore barrel to fit your gun. I shoot a Remington 3200 with a .780 top single. Low recoil and great patterns. You can see for your self with the pattern board. Have your buddys with the larger bore barrels show you. Compare them to your barrel pattern.

    We are all suckers for a well presented cut bait.

    CalvinMD- Don't be so short with your answers. Is your hole round, square, oblong or some other shape? We are all interested in your hole.

    Speak for yourself, Pat. I have NO interest in anyone else's "hole." (hehehe)

    BTW - Mine's ROUND & STRAIGHT!

    it depends on the gauge of course but most have interchangeable holes...to accomodate the type of load
