I am interested in knowing if anyone has rebored a New Englander or Renegade 50 caliber to a smooth bore shotgun gauge. Also, what is the maximum gauge that can be done? I called Bobby Hoyt to talk but answering machine said he was busy till March so I don’t want to bother him. I should have bought a New Englander 12 gauge years ago but family and hounds didn’t allow for that and prices now are out of my league. Any info would be appreciated on what anyone has had done. Thanks in advance.
