You are correct.

So, if you want to use a AC barrel you have to cut .250 +/- .002 off the end and counterbore .250dp. x .782 +.000 -.002 for the id.


Our other option is to make a longer breach and put another o-ring on the shell to center it to the barrel.

The barrel modification sounds the least expensive.

I would still like to see a magic barrel. If there is I will make a breach for it. It has been our limited experience that FS is a 100% 1shot kill at 60 yards.
From 70 to 100+ yards is the iffy zone and of course the accuracy degrades the further out it goes.
Yeah, I don't want to butcher my sizers. I'd rather bore a barrel (or actually a .686 brass insert if what I'm thinking will work).

What Lapco barrel are you talking about? I have a .686 Lapco FS barrel for my 8.1 and it shoots regular paint just fine.
