I know that one of the PD snipers recommends it, but I have never gone through the process of fire lapping my barrels. I haven't heard anything negative about doing it other than its a lengthy process.

Way back when the concept was coming to light I remember reading that it could be beneficial on revolvers if done correctly. It had to do with a bit of tightness in the bore where the barrel is threaded into the frame...kinda makes sense. It was not suggested for rifles for quite some time, as far as I can recall.

Numerous people have tested and reported on firelapping rifles and it seems the results are pretty much a mixed bag.

I do know one guy who told me the first thing he does with a new rifle is firelap it. Crazy, IMO.
