What brand/model rifle is it?

Re: Barrel fouls after 5 shots?

Are you doing barrel break in? If not why are you cleaning so much? Do not even think about taking out the copper until you have a degradation in accuracy. You can take out powder fouling, but I don't even do that until I see a degradation. I understand you said its the reverse of what you would expect.

If I'm way off in my understanding of your issue disregard my thought's.

Following along with Elkaholic's questions can you state the model of the rifle and any mods you have done to it? You said its a 700 but a 700 what etc....? If it has a usable stock we can bed it very easily for very cheep, in a few days.

Re: Barrel fouls after 5 shots?

I experienced this several years ago and it required a change of bullet to correct the problem. The rifle was also a Reminton 700 Mil Spec in 308. The bullet that would give results with a clean bore only was a 165 Hornady SST, the problem was corrected with a 165Ballistic Tip. It also was OK with 175 SMK's and 165 Game Kings. Im not sure why this occurred, but can only assume it was as a bore/bullet compatibility issue.
