    I think it will be very hard to get a .30 cal. rifle that shoots quality factory ammo into .75 MOA to shoot cast into 1.25 MOA. Not saying it can't happen but premium factory ammo is pretty good these day. I check out bench rest comp results in "The...

    I think what he is trying to tell you is that if you don't lap/polish your bore it will not have a superfine finish. As far as burrs, you would need to be very specific. Burrs come in all sorts of varieties. I think you are talking about sharp edges...
