stupid question i know,
but, would shooting bird shot out of a rifled barrel cause bad patterns?
Say one was not even remotely worried about burning out the rifling.
ive never done it, i know its not "good" for the barrel but im just wondering, i had always taken out shot shells deer hunting when i was younger even with my rifled single shot 12ga just in case i wanted to shoot something else... the desire never came up. I have shot bird shot through a rifled choke just to see what kind of damage it does to the rifling but i couldnt see any.
has anyone done it a lot?
