    Butch,
    Appreciate the reply. I was not aware of this development. I am guessing that Douglas was pushing a plug thru after reaming but in order to remove the reamer marks it would seem to me he...

    Butch,
    You might be right! The largest things we buff in our shop are barrels and actions using 150-600 grit. As I said earlier we've always been satisfied with the results but as the saying goes...

    Thru the years I have seen a few buttoned barrels with loose spots. These barrels had not been lapped. I am guessing that the button either slowed up or stopped. I have an old 722 .222 with a loose...
