Yes, on purpose, 4th or 5th I’ve done. The 1st was setup like a science experiment, I had made oak hardwood V-blocks to set the barrel in, repeatedly too, if needed. And used ratchet compression clamps to make the bend, all the time measuring deflection (before/after) by my 0-2” travel micrometer. The 2nd & later, I still used the clamps, but on this last one (the Fusil de Chasse I just completed - I just ‘wung it’. Yup, right there at the range, I just pulled it out of the stock, braced and wedged the muzzle end against the cross-beam of the heavy shooting bench and just gave it a good ‘oommphhh’ just enough to feel like I moved metal .... I had been printing a good 6” left of my point of aim, confirmed at both 25&50Yds, but darn it if I wasn’t lucky - or good, lol - and I brought it right in!
