Oval Choke Experiment
In this video, I made a 12-gauge barrel out of plumbing pipe and flattened one end of the pipe slightly to see if an elliptical barrel would produce an oval pattern. At the time I thought this was a new idea, although I’ve since found references to oval chokes being produced commercially. Nevertheless, it was an interesting experiment.
Idaho was one of the last continental US states to be settled and, more so than some parts of the US, the culture of Idaho still retains a frontier spirit of self-reliance. As host of TheIdahoanShow on YouTube, I endeavor to produce videos capturing this enduring pioneer spirit, at least as it is practiced by this Idahoan. Of course, shooting and associated ancillary activities are an important part of Idahoan culture, and so many of my videos pertain in some way to the making or testing of firearms and/or ammunition. Here on the Reloaders’ Network, I have endeavored to consolidate this portion of my work as a reference for the reloading community.
