Hi all

If I shortened my barrel how do you sort out the crown once cut down?
This would be done on a lathe not just hacksawed!
cheers

I like to cut an 11 degree crown. Use a very sharp tool. Make the cut light and start at the inside, feeding tool (mounted in the compound rest) outward across the face. Break the outer edge with a file. The rifling should need nothing if your tool was sharp.~Muir
