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.
