Re: 7mmWSM project completed

hey nate,
i talked to my smith last night.. i should have thought about it.. but i shot the rifle around 60 or 70 shots since last cleaning because i was getting ready for an egg shoot, it kept shootingg well so i hated to change anything as long as it kept it up.. when i got home i plugged it in to my outers foul out 3 and it had lots of copper all the way through.. smith said thats probably normal for shooting that many rounds through it.. Bythe way the last 2 shots i fired from it at the shoot (before i cleaned it) connected with the egg at 500yds... so i think the copper is mainly my fault!
what is your opinion???

    Hi Brien,
    It sounds like you have a heck of a nice shooting rifle.
    I like to clean my rifles every 50 rds.Another thought I had was if flame erosion or friction heat from the bullet could cause heat cracks in the surface of the throat but I'm still learning in that area.But I wouldn't worry about it.Two of my riflrs have krieger barrels and I get copper out of them after 50 shots but usually only takes 5 patches to totaly clean.I use pro shot copper solvent and a brush, I also use butch's bore shine. They seem to work very well for me.

    also Sunday morning I shot a hundred yd. 3-shot group with my 7mmWSM the group measures
    .050 from center to center I know it probably was accident or mayby just luck
    but I just about fell off my chair when that 3rd.shot went through the same whole! looks about like a single .30 cal.hole.mayby I'll post a pix sometime.
    good shootin',
