    among other things a good gun smith will check firing pin protrusion, head space ,and put a guage plug through the bore,to make sure a bullet can go down thwe barrel safely , the head space check will make sure there are no split case, or breach explosions, he may fire a couple of proof rounds through it him self , after all that you should be good to go,,cheers ian
