Shotgun Bore Burnishing:
Burnished Shotgun Bore:
This applies to all shotgun bores other than chromed bores, all shotgun bores are polished but not burnished, burnishing removes all the scratches from shotgun bores left by polishing with abrasives.
This is very consistent and your first line of defense in greatly reducing moisture trapped in the bore of the shotgun which then starts the process of rust formation in the barrel.
Shotgun bore burnishing actually closes the pores in the gun metal and leaves the metal surface very slick, it will make almost any shotgun more consistent in patterning and point of impact.
Shotgun bore burnishing reduces substantially plastic fouling left in shotgun bores from plastic wads, which in turn reduces pattern consistency.
Burnishing is really simple to do, but, it is very time consuming, when done properly, it can be very rewarding in benefit of increased pattern density and consistency.
