 Beartooth Bullets > Tech Notes > Muzzleloader Fire Lapping
So, it stands to reason that of we could firelap the muzzleloader barrel and eliminate the constrictions in the bore, that not only would accuracy be enhanced, but perhaps fouling from the fl powder residue deposited in the barrel might be reduced as well.
Thus the lapping bullet, carrying its abrasive compound, is forced fully into the bottoms of the grooves of the rifling in the muzzleloader bore, and consequently both the tops of the lands and the bottoms of the grooves are unilaterally lapped at nearly the same rate.
Since muzzleloading barrels are not the same harness as those of centerfire cartridge guns, the constrictions are removed quite readily, and in each case of these test guns lapped no more than twenty lap loads were required, even for the tightest of constricted barrels.
