Good Lord Ernie. You really like hearing yourself talk don’t you? That’s cool. You’re a knowledgeable fella, no doubt. You just made a silly comment, got called on it, and now you’re an angry, long winded, bloviating, upset guy. Sorry you got so offended. Honest.
Have a nice day. I really don’t feel like a snarky back & forth with an angry geriatric. Doesn’t feel quite right. You win, man. 👍🏽

damacus,
I don't have a dog in this fight, but I think you should check your math. If you take "1/10 of an inch" from a .729" bore the result is .829". I think you meant to say 1/100 of an inch.

The flex hones referenced in this interesting discussion of honing barrels (and UK proof of same) in my experience are practical useless as a "hone"-- they do a fairly good job at polishing. Honing shotgun barrels requires a substantial hone such as those made by Sunnen. There is also a firm in Tennessee who makes a hone.

The late renown gunsmith, Jim Kelly of Darlington, SC had his photograph using his hone in an article about him in the South Carolina Wildlife magazine and that article was added to a post on this BBS. I attach that post it here for those of you who are unfamiliar with honing machines.

The Sunnen hone is what has been used for years to hone automotive brake cylinders. Best used by people who have some experience... they can be pretty aggressive.

Sunnen has a great many different grits of stones. The finest will do no more than polish the tubes. I haven't used the courser grits so I'm guessing you could get too aggressive.
