Or through the petals themselves. Have had pinholes in CSD's.Any hard shot type used in a lead wad is playing with fire. Check for scoring that can start in the forcing cone. Even with heavy, non tox wads, there is a chance for a piece of shot poking through the wad slits.
I highly doubt anyone has done this.Has anyone mounted,sectioned and etched to see what the thickness of the tin plating is.
It's intended function is a selling feature. They seem to emphasize "spherical precision". If it's intended function was a softer "sacrificial surface", then what is the point of making it perfectly round and promoting that aspect? (as that property wouldn't remain after being fired). Also, if it's intended purpose was to make it barrel friendly, they would sure as heck mention it in the marketing. They don't.The tin is the same hardness as lead. I don’t think manufacturing wise they would plate it if it didn’t have an intended function. I’m hoping it’s function is sacrificial surface that won’t hurt the barrel.
No it does not. This seems like an awful lot of wishful thinking to me. What you want the plating to be, the Browning barrel... all of it. Sorry. My $.02Brownings lengthened forcing cone and probable minimum choke due to slower speed and large shot size gives me a chance at lead components and recipes.
