Thread: Over-rated Crown

  1. #1

    Over-rated Crown

    I have just read a very interesting article on longrangehunting.com called Over-rated crown by Alan Marshall.

    He starts off by recrowning a 308 then shoots it, and then in stages he takes a chisel,a punch, a grinder and then a Dremmel to the crown and between each butchery he shoots another group and it makes no differance to the accuracy and no he cannot explain why.

    But it makes a good read.

    Looks like the rifling ends almost before the damage starts?

    Didn't read the article, but on my rimfires a new crown made a lot of difference

    I've cracked it - that is actually an 'after' picture from a number of 'gunsmiths' who claim to do recrowning...

    It is an interesting read. There is only one immutable law for rifles - nothing is certain!

    'We' partly make a rod for our own back in that we are all guilty of frequently talking in terms of absolutes. Often those actual absolutes are fair enough - but really have a three volume set of caveats that should be read at the same time.

    With most things regards getting rifles to shoot well, we should think in terms of improving the chance of 'X' resulting in more consistent performance/ accuracy/ sex appeal etc etc etc.

    I dont think I'll resort to the Dremmel to shift those stubborn bits of fouling at the muzzle anytime soon though....

    The barrel was perfect before he attacked it.

    I've shot a lot of Deer with mine but never found any reason to shoot a nail, however, if I see one misbehaving I might shoot one then
