Reply To: Bullet lapping?
I’m not sure that firing a pellet with polishing compound would be that useful .. I’m like Reaper I use JB borepaste or Flitz metal polish an then clean it up with Hoppes 9 … When I rebuild a gun I plug the crown and soak the barrel overnight in Hoppes and then polish it . When it’s done it looks like a mirror inside . I use boresnakes a lot and just remove the brushes on all but one o them . I have 4 I use in 177…1 has brushes and it’s for first step cleaning , then one with Hoppes , one dry , and then one with oil .
I wash the dry one with my work clothes so it always oil free as much as possible . I tried just using a boresnakes to lap a barrel but it doesn’t work well so I just use a rod an jag .
