    Does this system possibly slightly taper the bore as well as smooth/finish it?
    Can you feel any tightening down the bore using a tight patch?

    Thank you all for the information.
    I understand Bridgeville DE just had an F-Class meet with 600 & 1000 yardages. I will likely head that way for the next scheduled F-Class event.

    Lapua 6BR Norma Cases - Available!

    Just an FYI -
    A shipment of long awaited Lapua 6BR Norma cases must have gone out. Midway sold out quickly, Brownell's has none, but Cabela's is still showing availability, albeit pricey.
