Not saying they did, but that is another possible reason.

IIRC the MPC B size 13mm Mini-Jets had a significantly higher cato rate than the smaller ones. Though it may have been one nororious bad batch and they didn't make that many batches of B's (or the others) before MPC bailed.

Yes, which falls under #3...stopped making B's. Once you stop making B's, there's no reason to keep the long casing. Cato issues was what I was thinking about when I listed it, but it could have been simply due poor sales numbers, or any number of other reasons involving materials and/or profitability.
