That's a fair point I think. Since this is primarily about first strikes being as how it's in the first strike thread. It may be beneficial if we keep our fingers focus there. I'm not saying that first strikes couldn't benefit for smiths hone themselves. They may well could. I think if bryce's theory proves true that an over bored smooth bore one barrel that's slightly shorter than 14" say somewhere between 10 and 12 is optimum. Than I would venture a guess that using a finer hone on that smooth barrel could only help. If I miss quoted you at all Bryce I apologize. But than on the other hand if we're to find that pre spinning the fsr with a rifled barrel does work and is beneficial than a finer hone probably won't help much
