    One trick that I used back in the day was to have soft jaws as tall as possible, but relieve the middle portion so that each jaw contacts the stock in 2 places.

    This right here.
    Use the big leading edge, it's a different holder altogether but will help.
    And you will be able to feed faster. It's akin to a high feed milling cutter. Also might want to try...

    I deleted my initial response, you're asking for a better finish.
    You could try taking your rpm's down a little bit, and keeping your feedrate around .003" ipt.

    You could zig zag down, but I doubt that would be faster than a slitter in aluminum.
    I wouldn't bother buying a high-feed style end mill, just use a bullnose if you go that route.

    Or depending on...

    This hasn't been our experience at all when we run one of our aluminum production jobs.
    The volume of chips is simply too much for it to handle. And it gets into our coolant tank at times too....

    Mastercam gives too much control that can be overwhelming in multiaxis paths, I agree,but at least the control is there if you need it.

    You'd be surprised at just how efficient some of these HSM toolpaths are vs the old school "bury it and plow" toolpaths.
    Of course there are situations where old school is faster.

    We have the Metrol tool setter on ours and I've been very happy with it.

    If I were in your shoes, I'd drill and bore a pilot about 1/2" or so, then drill to depth.

    If I were in a normal shop, I'd spot drill, pilot drill, and then deep hole drill with TSC.
