    Default converting a 2 1/2 inch chamber to a 2 3/4 chamber

    I have a old non noncollectable European shotgun, steel barrels, bolt action that has a 2 1/2 inch chamber. I'm thinking of rechambering to 2 3/4 inch. any thoughts?
    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    I guess I would be concerned about enough metal to ream out a 1/4 "

    Anyway some 2-1/2 shells around....

    This is a great example of a good use for the Aquilla 1 3/4" minishells.

    You can also get those 2 1/2" shells Hunter sourced from Midway if you are used to shopping there.
