bore treaqtments are spendy but as a choice for a low budget shooter --burnish the bore with 0000steel wool to polish and remove residue from wads and such and then saturate a wool swab with slick-50 and swab bore-cure in a warm spot like by the fireplace for a few hours and then dry--oil lightly and then try out the chrono--rember the slicker and smoother the bore the faster the shot.

perhaps my info is a little old but in the gun digest book of trap and skeet shooting Larry Nailon is refered to on page 186 when he fine tunes a barrel and quote"Nailon polishes his bores with a set of hones down to #800 grit and if you are one of the smoart shotgunners that claen his barrel with a brush wrapped in 000 steel wool you are doing a little burnishing each time you clean your gun--

sub sr., it's tough to offer help to those that already know most everything about everything. Nailon only went part way in his steps for creating a mirror bore finish on metals/bores but it is a step in the right direction.

We've lost several of the knowledgeable posters that once shared their (learned) vast experiences here due to having to defend their knowledge over opinions/myths and outright BS posts.

SO, rather than offer, ask, you could write a book on BS/myths/opinions received most times and other times you'll get straight forward help instead of SAAO&M by sorting the wheat from the chaff.
