Got a look at my barrel today with gunsmith's bore scope. There is some copper fouling, some throat errosion with heat signs that weren't there the last time this barrel was scoped. The rest of the barrel still shows tooling marks, that I thought would have been removed by the tubbs system. Gunsmith told be to try some more lapping with JB bore cleaner. I cleaned the bore thoroughly with Montana extreme copper remover and lapped the bore numerous times. I will go back tomorrow and have another look see with the bore scope. At this point I want a new barrel. This barrel has never shot right and has always copper fouled very badly. I think I would rather have a factory take off than this POS Douglas premium. I am leaning very seriously towards either a Krieger or Mike rock stainless barrel.
I also learned today that the gunsmith used green loctite to secure my muzzle brake
. Has anyone ever had any luck getting green loctite to release? If it releases with heat, how much?
I am just a little depressed to think that I have almost shot out a barrel just trying to make it shoot.
