After seeing it the Ruger tuneup here , I decided to cut my guns to 11 degrees . Remember this ammo is loaded for fps not for accuracy for SASS/CAS . I cut the forcing cone to 11 degrees for cast bullets , there is not any lead deposit on barrel or forcing cone after 50 rds , 1st 20 rds on paper and other 30 rds on steel at match speed . Target and gun looks good , so I will cut my 2 match guns next .
Ditto with Mark, Kent Singletary told me last year when I sent him my S&W 36 carry gun for a tune up that it doesn't hurt anything, but is entirely unneccesary if you're just going to shoot jacketed bullets, and most guys will never notice the accuracy increase shooting offhand, do you have a before target gunrunner? Now chamfering the cylinder mouths, I'd reccomend that to anyone for any gun

No , I have these pics of a steel target I shot for speed and handling test I did between 3 1/2 and 7 1/2 barrel , alternating guns every 5 shots . I'm a SASS/CAS shooter and the pic below was at match speed after I cut the barrel down .
Tn Gunrunner, thats very good shooting, I especially like that 20 shot group at 25 yds. Everyone needs to try that sometime, offhand of course. Quite a few guns can do that, not many shooters can. Very nice!
Groo here I had a M-25 Smith in 45colt done by SSK some time ago when I had the crown redone [ yes I droped it!!] They said to call back after I got my first 1 in group.... Had to call about 8 months later.. What a difference!!!!!
