With a bore obstruction as you've described (impressions inside the bare from roll marks, etc.), fire lapping will get that straightened out. But, I've always felt that fire lapping induced premature barrel wear, and have been reluctant to use it except in dire cases.

As I said, we'll agree to disagree.

I don't believe you need to neck size to get sufficient accuracy to compete ...
