Brilliant!
How do you keep a consistent twist and travel? So the rifling is exactly even all the way down?

Yep its chuck key and although it does require some effort, the results were very good not perfect but worth a try

The chuck key is your rifling cutting broach?

The chuck key is your rifling cutting broach and all the grooves are cut at once - as in 1 pull? do you have a 300 pound Dutch lad to help you?

The chuck key is tapped in to the barrel to start it off and the barrel is then placed in a vice along with the control plate. I then pull it through with a t bar not easy but still able to do,the key only cuts a very shallow groove

I am with Jezx in that you need better grooves to qualify as rifled. When you shoot a slug it likely slides right past those scratches.

I have pulled a cleaning rod through and it follows the grooves giving a good twist but only testing will show if it works

The grooves only need to be shallow its sole purpose is to put a spin on the projectile.

It will be more efficient too.

Is that you Carl?
Need to draw a sizer down first then rifle. Tubes may not even be round and certainly not same throughout the bore.

If it can be pulled through by hand it did ZERO rifling

Recovered slugs will show the story.
