    When steel first came out lots of people reloaded it using standard shotcups. The shot would push thru the pedals and leave grooves starting at the forcing cone. On the ones I have seen it was worse at the chamber end.

    Steel shot in wads not designed for steel will do that. When steel shot was first mandated I saw a couple of barrels like that.

    Deer in cold climates tend to have larger bodies than deer in warm areas. About 20 years ago a whitetail buck I shot won two large deer contests. One paid $300 and the other paid $200. They went by weight. That was in North Dakota. It went 248...

    I live in Vt. too, and if it really is a no rust CJ-5, you won't find many like it in this state. I'd strongly suggest you put it up in the winter, the amount of salt they use here and what it will do to an older rig in short order is horrifying. ...
