CHARGES OF SHOT—At what distance would two lines intersect which are drawn from the center of the breech and muzzle of each barrel of a double shotgun; in other words, at what distance from the muzzle would the charges cross?
It would be impossible to give any definite answer as the barrels of different guns are not put together in the same way. If it is worth the trouble you could find where the lines of the center of the bore would cross by careful measurements. Find the difference between the centers at the breech and muzzle; measure the length of the barrel and it will be easy to figure out. The charges of shot only cross each other, in theory. What really happens is that the shot spread out and both barrels cover the same target up to the limit of the gun’s range.
