He's already looking at a fair mix hybrid, so he may not want to up the mix.

Yes it will work..it would perhaps just be easier to dust your projectiles in graphite or ptfe and lube the barrel.

10x is about as high as I want to go, maybe up to 12x. But I am looking at normaly opperating at 7x. The point of the teflon liner is to achieve a better barrel-ammo fit. I have found that I can get a closer tolerance using teflon over steel tubing.
