To be able to say this gun/load/choke combination is safe firing this round using this sized shot is a bit on the ridiculous side, again using set standards they think are correct.

One thing that you have to remember about the CIP/SAAMI differences is that regardless of what people say about a "global economy" or "world village", there are some very large cultural differences between Europe (mostly) and the good old USA. American guns, for the most part, are much more robust than their European counter parts. The European guns, on the other hand, tend to be lighter and more lively handling than all but the best American examples. Europeans favor thinner barrels to achieve this. Thinner barrels are more vulnerable to damage by shot charges bridging at the choke cone. And, finally, larger shot tends to bridge more than smaller shot.
Of course, they could just build their guns a little more robustly!
Hmm! so Beretta, Benelli, Fabarm etc etc etc autos is all crap , and american autos are not ? What will Beretta, Benelli,Fabarm of america say about that ? If thats true , why are the alowed to sell their products in united states ?
