I only lap enough to smooth out the bore and make it uniform. (Excessive lapping can ruin a
barrel so be sparing with the lapping.
Normally I inspect with a bore scope to determine what the problem is and only lap until it is
If done correctly ti will normally break in faster and will increase the velocity over the rough
This process is not recommended for the high end custom barrels because of there quality
and in most cases they have already been lapped.
