BigJimFish offers an introduction into the concept of barrel tuning and tests whether it is a viable way to improve performance with factory ammunition.
If one is “outcome-oriented”, an impact on a piece of steel smaller than the actual torso of a man is a wonderful feeling, especially when followed up by a rapid second impact. It was Predictable because we took an empty space at a firing line, occupied it with our shooting gear, loaded a rifle, dialed elevation on a turret and hit with a cold-bore shot. It was Repeatable because we replicated that impact. But to a great degree, we are not outcome-oriented, we are “process-oriented”, and constantly striving to improve our processes and, if not consciously, subconsciously we are eliminating errors, one-by-one, and grow as shooters.
