The first 6" of the bore need polishing on the rifle I just finished. It is extremely hard to get a ball started plus a very hard drag until it gets past that 6" then smooth as butter. What do you use to polish bores? I may need to ease the crown as well.

This, I specifically designed it to smooth out new and old rough bores. Just soak a dry patch, swirl it to gather up the polishing media, load, shoot, repeat.

Shoot out! patch lube and bore enhancer. Check out the classifieds for the ad I have up.

But I only need the first 6" of the bore polished. The rest of the bore is smooth and loads very nice even after 20 shots. I almost need a hammer to get the ball started and really whack on the short starter to get it down the barrel far enuf to take over with the ram rod.
