Can someone explain the pros of an over bored gun. I am no expert, but it seems like having an over bored barrel would let the gases escape past the shot cup therefore giving you less FPS and a blown out pattern. Also choking seems like it would be a problem.

No offense, but I'd trust the engineers at Browning, Beretta, and Winchester before I'd trust an internet wizard tongue.gif


Overboring can produce excellent patterns. It works fine. No loss of fps.


Indeed, I get more of a blown pattern from the underbored Benellis. I can easily fine tune this underbore with the correct choke & load combination though.


Benellis are much more durable tools, but overbored guns pattern better, much better.


I would read up at the gun makers websites for more info.
