I did not sell anything, and it did not include an 8ga. reamer.

Austin was meticulous in his plotting of the measurements of chambers, bores and chokes he measured. Here he supports his findings of forcing cones and chokes having been cut to an Ogee.

I took these picture of some of the pages in his notebook. You'll notice that most of them are identified with serial numbers and some are right into the 1920's.

I checked them out and can report back.

I have 15 factory choke reamers from various periods and for various gauges ranging 28g to 12g. (two of them are marked as being made by Hayes). 7 of them are finish reamers and the rest of roughers. The roughers are all straight tapers (checked with a straight edge). 2 of the finishers are straight as well. The other 5 finishers do have an ever so slight bow on the cutting edge. shaped like () if you will. The straight edge rocks just a hair.
