Re: really tough copper fouling

if you think that copper is bad just wait till you jump on the carbon fouling. copper aint nothing.I use sweets and some JB compond. A buddy of mine likes the isso bore cleaner from sinclair it all works well for us though. You know what they say different strokes for differnt folks. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: really tough copper fouling

I am not afraid to use sweets solvent for cleaning. I am afraid to leave any in my barrel. Within a couple minutes of its use, I run 2 dry patches through. Then I clean that crap out with powder solvent.

For really stupborn copper try the JB bore compound. I dont know what the truth is on that stuff but I do know that I use it every time I clean my rifle. I clean between 50-75 rounds and I have 2500 rounds through the tube. Still shoots .25 MOA at every range to 800 yards. Who knows, maybe thats why it shoots so good!! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
