Never said it was my method Jeff so what it is it that you are actually trying to get at?
If you have your own process please share it!

To be done right the choke should actually be accomplished in the barrel reaming process. But I will also not share just how that might have been done all though I do I know. 
The reaming of the barrel is actually the most important part of a good barrel. And not what one might think to do such as hand lapping it as that would only alter it. 

So how many choked barrels have you made that are winning matches?


It's such a secret because people are running to you to supply barrels??

John Louis quote. Just today I believe. 

"Very nice indeed Bob and I would only add to help others to do the same. And if they have any personal goals they would like to achieve. To do everything one can to help them achieve each and every one of them."

That from that wonderfully syrupy, I'm so blessed thread.
John, help us understand, please! You must tell us how it is done. Help us understand.

I have been installing barrels for more than a few years and have heard all kinds if things from customers. One will say he has had his barrel stress relieved and the next will say his was frozen ( cryogenic). One prefers cut rifling the next wants hammer forged and lapped. Most want the best accuracy with the least amount of money spent. Some believe in gain twist and other don't. What I have started to believe, if a person thinks they have a better barrel then they tend to get better groups. It's as much a head game as it is having a quality product.

John I have had barrels that were just not competitive in the past. 
But I do agree it can be a head thing for someone who actually does have one but doesn't believe that he does.

Art_ruggiero so very true. Over the years I have watched others spending allot of money trying copying those at the top of the winning list. And end up in a mode of constant change to only end up just chasing their own tail. When they probably already had what could get them their in the first place. And what others would then end up trying to copy it they would just spend enough time with it.

That's not very helpful John. I think your sincerity system is out of order.

I can understand a technician not wanting to divulge something that gives him an edge over the competition, but to carry the "secret" to his grave is being a bit churlish, IMO. How is mankind to advance its knowledge if all smart people keep themselves to themselves? 

Death bed confession: "I'm outta here folks. Here's why I shot 1/2" groups at 200 yards all my life with a .32-40 - I lubed my bullets with grease that oozes out of my lawn mower's king pins. If y'all want it, go see my wife and she'll sell it to you for $10K."
