Just honest questions:
Since I think it is resolved that breakin is a requirement for preparation, so what about the relative advantages/disadvantages of using fire-lappping for the primary method of breakin? Therenis some support among competative shooters for fire-lapping (David Tubb)
What about following-up fire-lapping with some form of electropolishing (blackstar?)
Just trying to figure out what is the very B E S T way to get that bore as smooth as POSSIBLE so it will be ready for the permanence that the nitro-carburizing brings?
Thanks for the lively discussion! I've learned a whole lot!
