i need a steel or possibly brass slug made to my bore ID to iron out a very small dent in my barrels (not big enough to cause any issues, but it makes putting my subgauge tubes in a little bit of a pain. If anyone out there has a lathe and could make one of these for a few bucks, please send me an email.

Hey,

Do not use steel. Steel against steel may cause Gauling and if it is a Chromed barrel no telling what will happen.

Make a shuttle out of Bronze or Brass. We used a threaded rod and pulled the shuttle through the barrel and it looked prettey good when we were done.

Take care,

Jim

thanks for the advice. I'll change my request to a bronze or brass slug then. OD would be .780"

I just checked some sockets.My Craftsmen 9/16 socket in 3/8 drive measures .776. You might try your sockets and put a layer of scotch tape around it if needed. Just a thought. Ray.......
