Any time you change the crown, you run the risk of losing some accuracy. It's a job I'd entrust only to a first rate gunsmith. If your accuracy hasn't been degraded, I'd leave well enough alone!

Marine armorers that I spoke with at Camp Perry six years ago, did the job on a lathe, and only when absolutely necessary. Cleaning rod damage was the prime source of muzzle damage in their opinion.
