    There wont be. But you can take out .003 without even feeling it cut not to mention what carbon does to your reamer.

    I brought this very subject up with the smith that built my last rifle and he told me to not use the reamer for carbon ring removal as it may ruin the reamer.

    Yessir, I will be giving that a try this afternoon!

    I did use a normal nylon brush this AM before work, 3 complete strokes full length. That removed the black ring in the neck and the majority of Carbon in the FB, but did not touch the ring. My borescope developed an issue so I have another on order that will be here tomorrow. I will continue with the pictures then. Do you guys know if I become a silver or gold contributor if it lifts the 10 posts in 48 hour rule?
