If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

Kind of........ Your forcing cone dimension is actually the most important thing to worry about, and barrel bore too I guess. If it is too large, no cylinder will be that accurate. And if your forcing cone is much smaller than the bore of your barrel, cylinder alignment will mean nothing also. Too much for me to worry about personally. If it shoots straight, (looks like it shoots fine), load it, shoot it, and quit worrying about it. Every day you worry about that extra one half inch at a hundred yards is one less day you spent hunting rabbits like it was meant to do
Next project is shooting groups with each chamber and seeing which is most accurate and where they hit. Often revolvers are compared to .22 semi autos and said to not be as accurate. Maybe true, but it's also not quite fair as you have six different chambers and unless the machine work and smithing is extremely accurately done, there's no way all 6 will shoot to the same point. Like different guns like different ammo, it's because of minute differences in machining and construction. So when you're shooting or sighting in a revolver, you're really sighting in some kind of average 'tween all six chambers. I imagine some chambers will shoot different ammo better and worse, too, but I'll stick to the Winchester that's been the most accurate.
