As I understand from watching the "60 Minutes" segment on TV, our NRA spokesman, Wayne LaPerrier (sp) indicated the imprinting on a bullet from a brand new barrel is quite different than one that has had several hundred bullets shot through it. I'd say the barrel lapping, especially if you used the really aggresive grits, would certainly alter the engraving marks of the rifled bore.

The thing that would help you also, is the firing pin leaves a characteristic marking on the primer cup, plus bolt face markings. Semi-auto's will have a problem in this regard, unless you also alter the firing pin and bolt face. Since you have a revolver that retains the spent brass instead of broadcasting it over the street area, there would be no way to trace the brass - unless you happened to reload and dumped the stuff at your feet! You wouldn't do that, would you?
