Just look at your ruleset with iptables -nvL. It shows you the ruleset
that is loaded and any packet passes through that ruleset until it reaches
one of the final targets.

Final targets are ACCEPT, DROP an REJECT. Non final targets for packets
are LOG and any self-defined chains while ACCEPT, DROP and REJECT are
again the final targets for those self-defined chains.

I'm pretty sure that you'll eventually figure it out. :-)
