Ran across this recent article from Guns & Ammo. At first I was circling misstatements but before long my pen ran out of ink so I quit. See what you find m

At least he says you can shoot Damascus barreled guns. I agree the article could have been written and researched better.

To think he could write that article without referencing Sherman Bell’s work...

Yes he is too emphatic on many points that should have been researched and explained better.

Those of us who've been part of this BB for a long time can remember that there was once a very vocal group here who referred regularly to "Damascus roulette". And we still have the warning on shotshell boxes about not using them in guns with Damascus barrels or short chambers.

No one who decries the use of old, damascus barrels, and cites examples of rupturing of the same, ever mentions the dozens of modern, fluid steel barrels that blow up every year.

I have seen more K80 barrels blow up in the last decade than Damascus barrels. But to be fair too many people do not have a decent knowledge level of proper pressures to shoot anything that might be questionable. So writers often aim towards that audience not the informed one.

The ONLY reason that warning is still printed on shotshell boxes is strictly for liability reasons. No insurance company would ever pay a dime if that warning wasn't there if there was a lawsuit because of an accident, REGARDLESS of what or who caused the accident.

uh-oh. All have been professionally checked out and conscientiously loaded for. If you have a number of them then no single gun will get worn out. That's one theory.
