    I understand that doing this can theoretically change bore dimensions etc, interested in real world experiance on the matter.

    If the barrel is cut-rifled, there shouldn't be a problem. If you take a button-rifled barrel right down in size, then it's a definite possibility that the residual stress will be released, increasing the bore dimensions esp at the muzzle end.
