Let your fingers do the walking, call them

https://www.littleskeeters.com/skeeters-history/

Thus began the quest for a material that would resist distortion and provide a tube that would function at a level that would make it practical for everyday use. I then turned to a friend, Leonard Vallender, President of FenBar Precision Machinists, Inc., a superb precision machinist and engineer who as a shooter was very interested in the potential of the product – although having doubts about the concept. Soon after machining the tubes in aluminum and test firing them, he was as convinced as I was that the patterns were on the money but that the distortion of the tubes and bulging of the ammunition was a concern.

After months of trial and error, we came upon the right combination of materials, size tolerances and internal and external dimensions that would be universally acceptable to all guns – knowing that chamber size varied from gun to gun. We have theorized that as the shot column enters the larger diameter bore, the shot column shortens so that when the shot column exits the barrel very few pellets pass from the rear of the column causing less disturbance or turbulence. Our patterns displayed no flyers, which attest to our theory.

That's very interesting. Thanks so much for the link.


May God bless America and those who defend her.

Do the Little Skeeters split the hull like silver Gaugemates, or otherwise damage them?

I can understand why someone might wish to have subguage inserts to shoot 12 ga. shells in a short 10. The 2 7/8" 10 ga. factory loaded shells are always costly and not always readily available. But I think a better solution there is to simply reload 10 ga. shells.

For all other gauges, if I wish to shoot a smaller gauge shell, I will just grab a different gun. The subguage inserts have always sounded like they are more trouble than they're worth, especially to shoot a typically more expensive shell such as a 16, 28, or .410


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.

You can knock a vintage gun off face using them.

I have had excellent performance from Chambermates in every gauge. I never jumped over one gauge reduction. Any bigger drop & patterns suffered. Wish I kept all of them back, only have 12 to 20 left.
