Final finish
 
My trying to learn as much as possible about firearms care, I happened across Chuck Hawks web site. He has an article written by Bill Johnson about affordable accuracy (http://www.chuckhawks.com/affordable_accuracy.htm).

Curiosity led me to the David Tubb web site and the article on Final Finish (http://www.davidtubb.com/davidtubb/content/templates/common/pdfs/break_in_article_new.pdf).

My question is, has anyone tried this, or know someone who had, or has heard about results (good or bad)?

It sounds almost too good to be true. For less than $40, improving the rifle's accuracy by up to 60%.

This will probably get multiple opinions- here's mine-

The degree of accuracy sought with that product and process would be discernable to a long range benchrest shooter that is trying to shrink a group from .39 to .30. Sorta like putting a turbo on a Yugo for a lot of folks.

I have seen several products used for fire lapping. Some swear by it, some swear at it. Some barrels may need it more than others. I do have a couple of older target rifles with hand lapped barrels- and they all shoot better than I can.

Would this give you OMG accuracy out of a Mini-14? Doubt it. Could it improve the accuracy of a 6mm BR rifle? Possibly.

Used to know a guy that ran a "Speed Shop"- place that sold aftermarket stuff to go on a car when you were building a racer. Had a sign that said "Speed is expensive. How fast did you want to go?" Same thing applies to accuracy.
