After reading Marshall's technical guide as well as his articles on the .444 Marlin, I'm convinced fire lapping is the best way to achieve the accuracy we all strive for. My question to Marshall or any other member of this forum is this. Would jacketed bullets be more accurate than cast bullets when shot from a barrel which has not been lapped? The lapping process sounds fairly straight forward although time consuming. It's the slugging of the barrel that worries me. I sure would hate to louse up a new outfitter. Thanks for your help.

Maybe, but you never really know.  It is true that jacketed bullets tend to be a little more forgiving of bore constrictions, etc., than cast.

You won't hurt the bore by slugging if you follow Marshall's directions.  It's quite educational.  Proceed carefully and be prepared to learn more about your gun.
