Yes, I searched. I recently acquired an Enfield and I want to slug the barrel. Or do I? My first C&R purchase was a Mosin Nagant 91/30 and a friend of mine from work slugged it for me. I was there for the event, but in my haste to get past the slugging and to the shooting, I failed to record the particulars other than that he said it was 'a nice tight barrel'. Then I started to wonder if it even mattered. If so, can some one help me slug my .303?

Ok so, based on that article, I really only need to slug a barrel if I am looking to reload for it? It doesn't remove copper/lead fouling or anything like that?

Correct.
