Over bored 20 Ga.

Question for the experts would taking a 16 GA barrel blank chambering for a 20 Ga with screw in chokes be to much over bore?

Bore diameter of a 16 is @.665 for a 20 it's @.615. Seems a bit much to insure the wad to seal properly.

Invector+ is probably the best you can get. I wouldn’t want any bigger than that for a 20

What is the objective? Couldn't you just fill in the pattern with more shot?
