This is my first try at crowning a barrel. It looks better in person than the pic. I set the barrel up in the head stock and dialed it in with a range rod till I had just a bump on the dial as I turned the barrel around. I faced it of and then set up to 11 degrees and cut the crown, the compound really was hard to feed smooth and I have one little ridge, the rifling is crisp and I just touched it with an abrasive to clean the edge from any burs. I made a small flat on the face so it wasn't sharp and beveled the edge which looks weird in the photo but it is very slight in reality. It's not perfect but man am I jacked, I finally got the gutts up to start cutting, this crown looks way better than it had from the factory. Give me a critique and pointers, please.
