Shotgun Terms

Dehorning a receiver(or anything) is simply rounding the sharper edges. I have a couple of pistols that have had this treatment.

Also the term that I have heard and use is "relieving the forcing cones". It accomplishes the above,...and...will usually shrink the size of your pattern.

I have a Ruger Red Label that had this done along with the bbl being chopped to 21 inches. With hand loaded magnum(hard) shot,it patterns like a "skeet" choke. ---pruhdlr
