Maybe it’s time for an update.. I made a barrel with a tapered chamber in the lathe, and it works, I havn’t had any issues yet. But one has to be careful when loading the gun, since the powder charge sets the spacing and you don’t want to charge it over the tapered line but neither do you want to leave an air gap.

The reloading of an untapered barrel is in that sense much easier and more foolproof.

I can’t understand how the old superposed guns could possibly work. Without a tapered chamber the compression of the next charge(s) is a big issue, atleast based on my experience of it.
