    I've fire lapped 18 or 24 rounds. With 400 grit Clover. Hard to remember I've worked with this thing for so long. Maybe I need to use a finer grit and do a few more since it appears to get a bit tighter towards the cylinder.

    I have considered that it’s not “clean”. Despite working a chore boy brush back and forth hundreds of times. Dry and soaked. Maybe there’s still layering of deposits. Been thinking about diy foul out / electrolysis.

    FC seems smooth to me. Same w cyl throats. I don’t have much of a frame of reference. Slug seemed to push thru barrel consistently. I choreboy’d it clean and within 20 shots it went from 2 inches at 15y to 5 inches. You wouldn’t call it a...

    Same here. That’s why I’m wondering if something else is up. I’ve tried em all. Diff ratios of WW and Lino, WW and pure. Hardball and pure. Air cooled, water dropped. Diff lubes. Powder coat. Diff common bullets, gas checked and plain based.
