Good info posted already. 

I’ve also had good results with fire-lapping (I use fine valve lapping compound). I use a Qtip with the swab cut off to make a ‘stick’, dab some into the breech, fire 3 shots, repeat.

During the process, I’ll clean, inspect and check grouping. A sharpened pencil, pasted and chucked in a drill does a fair job of polishing crowns. Sometimes I’ll chuck a copper jacketed .30 cal bullet (no case or primer/powder!) for a tapered recrown.
