I never researched what fire lapping was. Someone on here suggested I do this (http://www.winchesterguns.com/customerservice/qna/detail.asp?id=223) per the Winchester website to my new model 70 (http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=640550). So I followed the instructions to a "T".

I was just reading a little on fire lapping and it sounds pretty darn similar.

Actually, fire-lapping is coating bullets with abrasive grit and shooting them through the barrel.

I hope you didn't do that to a new rifle!!

no you didn't fire lap, you just followed the "barrel break in" proceedure
