OK... I'm not an idiot... really

just saw this today in another thread...

When it's time to change the barrel have it trued up (blue printed) & bed the action if your looking for accuracy.
so is there something I'm not getting here ??? what the heck is "blueprinting"

I've always thought a blueprint was a drawing of a something, or a piece of it... did it somehow become a mechanical process, or is this just some "buzz word" or is someone doing a "drawing" of the assembly, like that will make the rifle more accurate

I mean I understand the concept of "trueing up" & "bedding", but what does blue printing have anything to do with it ( I see this term with engines & other performance improvements on mechanical objects... example "that engine is balanced & blueprinted" ) so is it a process, rather than a drawing ???
In life you either make dust or eat dust...
