    Back bored 12bore - Fibre Game Cartridge.

    One of my guns is a MK38 38 backbored .I shoot fiber at clays if I couldn’t break Long clays .iwould use another gun .most wads I’ve measured are 750 cleaner wads are 750.I think useing felt wads in 3” chambers could create problems.As for game shooting . There a a lot of old English guns that are overbored barrels lapped out to remove pitting.We can all be a bit anal .I would like to see 2 good shots shooting high birds 1 shooting plastic .1 shooting fiber with over bored guns. I bet there’s no difference.
