Thanks, Parabola.

The bores are very tight, at .399" and .398", and taper down to .391" and .390" at the muzzles, giving .008" constriction in each barrel. With it's tight bores, and with sufficient wall thickness, I'm considering talking to Dean Harris about backboring the left barrel a little, to give me some more choke in it. I think it would make it a bit more versatile. He's a "gem" with barrels and chokes, and I'd trust his recommendation on whether or not to do so without question. One other thing I definitely will have done is sending it off to have the stock bent down for a little more drop. It's a bit too straight for me, for best shooting.

Before you decide on back boring I take it that you will pattern test it at your likely optimum range.

More choke can lead to unevenness in pattern coverage, particularly in a .410, and if it is delivering clan kills at 36 years the bore may be better left alone.

Good stock fit is always important.

I've pattern tested it many times, Parabola, but thanks for the reminder. It's a double trigger gun and I enjoy the versatility/option of having two differently choked barrels when hunting. I have another 30" barreled .410 double, the FAIR Iside, that has choke tubes. In patterning it I found that some of the tighter chokes worked quite well at tightening up the pattern for distance, without blowing the patterns badly. Shot size and load plays into that a great deal as well. It's all a "package", one might say.

Best to you, SRH

Another GA dove season opener yesterday. I don't think I've missed one since I was 14. I like to have missed yesterday due to the fact my telephone was ominously silent last week during the traditional invitation period for an opening day shoot. Without an invite, I went out to a grown up clear-cut on my deer lease with just a chair and a mojo teal spinner-wing and sat down under a shade tree. No doves, but I went.

I did hear a dove shoot going on somewhere in the distance and hope those boys had a good and safe outing. My own shoot was certainly safe because I fired no shots at all. I did however manage to fall asleep on my folding chair and turn it over into a brier patch, getting a good whack on the face in the fall. My lovely little Lindner Daly featherweight suffered no damage in the fall, I'm happy to say.

For many years my group of guys has made a tradition of gathering for the whole Labor Day weekend at a friend's plantation on the banks of the Ocmulgee river. We always had a good shoot there one day and the group would split up the other two days for other private or pay shoots near and far. Good food and good fishing between the dove hunts. We called it off last year due to the plague, and this year as well in view of the Delta bug.

There'll be other shoots before the season ends, but there is always something special about opening day. One day I'll quit going altogether and then I hope somebody will sing something pretty at my funeral...Geo

Tough crowd. I’m bracing myself for when the anti-smoke and soft drinkers chime in.

We had a great hunt frustrated by some tough doves and a mischievous bird dog. I hit more than a few that shed feathers and kept right on going. Then Sherwood disappears into the nearby neighborhood and was missing for 24 hours. I wound up with a limit, Harry got 5 and Julia got 4. She spent a good bit of time looking for Sherwood and would have had more otherwise. I found that practice at the dove tower at Forest City improved my game a good bit.
