Had I also been discussing CR in that post (it was about quench, primarily), I would have said that milling the heads, while not affecting the quench, WILL slightly raise the CR. But I wasn't, so I didn't. Have to draw the line somewhere, lest the post turn into a freaking book. Like this one is fixing to do.
