I got my fat little hands on a real nice 03A3 Springfield, it wont shoot for crap(realy) it cant even hit the black at 50yards, I was thinking after shooting it a bit things might change, no I fired about 30 rounds and I have been using JB Lapping Compound, I have used a half of my patches scrubing and brushing, an old friend told me, if you need to get tough use some Rubbing compound. Its starting to clean up some areas there was some bad spots in the grooves and its just starting to shine. its a 1947# how much scrubing is to much? Its kicking my but and I am just about had it. At first I could run a patch and the rod would not rotate and its just starting to. its just filthy and what looked like pits are disapering. Any advice could help..Thanks.
