    Haven't tried it. Alleged benefits questionable in real-world use. Based on our friends' experience with .260 Ackley, the additional work is not worth it. FYI before my old .260 barrel was toast I was shooting the 139's at 2900 fps even with no pressure signs.

    what was your round count if you don't mind? you know, roughly? and that was with a 26" barrel right?

    Yes, 26". It was somewhere over 4000. I didn't really keep track.
