    350 Legend new barrel question.

    I'm building an AR in 350 Legend specifically for plinking and hunting predators, using cast bullets. I chose 350 Legend, because of the AR calibers, it seems like a very good choice for cast bullet use.

    I just slugged the new barrel. It was hammer the slug (tight), then push by hand, then hammer again, then push by hand, then hammer yet again, and then the slug fell out. (It's a relatively cheap "AR Stoner" barrel from Midway) So, several tight and loose spots in the barrel.

    Sounds like I better hand lap the barrel, right??

    I also have an ar stoner 350 barrel from midway. I have never slugged the barrel.

    Shooting Lee 200 gr boolits cast 20:1 or so powder coated with a gas check I killed a good buck at 200 good steps.

    If you are sure you want to lap I would think about firelapping.

    My sample of starline brass was thinner in the neck than the Winchester brass that I have, so the Starline brass would chamber easier and cyle better in my ar.

    Any more questions just ask.
