Default Barrel Polishing Results

Hello I just thought I would share the results of my barrel polishing tests.
I used the method posted earlier by Bigsmooth35. Link to the post http://forum.hunting.net/asppg/tm.as...7&mpage=1&key=

The gun is a Mossberg 835 ulti mag with a XXX comp-n-choke. The ammo is Winchester High Vilocity 3 1/2" 2 oz #6 shot.

Picture 1. 20 yards before polishing 28 hits in the spine and brain.
.

Picture 2. 20 yards after polishing 34 hits in the spine and brain
.



Picture 3. 30 yards before polishing 23 hits in the spine and brain
.

Picture 4. 30 yards after polishing 23 hits in the spine and brain, It looks like I pulled that one to the left a bit.
.



Picture 5. 40 yards before polishing 7 hits in the spine and brain
.

Picture 6. 40 yards after polishing 11 hits in the spine and brain
.

I think that the 30 minutes that I spent polishing my barrel was well worth the effort. I was expecting better results at 20 yards. My gun used to put a golf ball size hole in the papper at 20 yards. But I was shooting 2 1/4 oz of 6 shot back then. I will have to try some of those 2 1/4 oz loads out again some day.
