Should I be concerned with this and have them lapped or leave them alone? I have not shot it yet.
If you can find a head space gauge, check it befor you do any lapping. if it is .003 or more don,t
do anything. if it is les you can lapp it a little but it will break in on it,s owne and have more
The fact that the lugs are marked all the way around is good and it should be fine.
