Re: All my Remington Shotgun barrels are bulging. Anybody else with this problem?
my older 870 wingmaster got a bulge years ago but it's a fixed barrel (modified choke) and the bulge is about 2/3 the way down the barrel, not up as far as yours.
the only thing that we could figure out among all of us at the skeet range is that sometimes the hull breaks off a small piece and rides the wad or something crazy but never really made much sense and the barrel still shoots perfectly fine. patterns well and everything, I didn't even notice it until probably a week or so after it happened while cleaning it out.
I don't ever shoot steel shot so this was from home-rolled skeet lead shot.
