We all have beat the topic to death whether shooting a long hull in short chambers is wise and many of us have long ago decided it is a perfectly acceptable and safe alternative. Now let's point out an ADVANTAGE shooting the longer hulls provides: since the hull opens up into part or most of the forcing cone it prevents the plastic or lead buildup commonly found in the forcing cone! Makes cleaning a lot easier! Though I've shot tens of thousands of these long hulls it didn't penetrate my thick skull until recently why I never have a lot of plastic to clean out of my vintage doubles. Now I know.

Have a great day. smile
