In other words it removes too much metal all the way around the bore for my personal tastes.
Bear,You calling me lazy!!! LOL

Most of the time a good handlapping works,but in some cases like my 25/06,it didn't.
I used the Tubbs Final Finish bullets as a last resort before I changed barrels,and it did indeed work.After looking at the bore with a borescope,I can see no ill effects from using the Tubbs system,and the rifle shoots 1/4" groups,and cleans up really easy now.
