i have not used a nylon brush. wipe out takes at most 2 sittings with 4-5 patches after each.

I use Wipe-Out and the Accelerator, and they work great as described: but I have two caveats:

1. Wipe-Out dissolves many stock finishes very quickly. Be careful.

2. Accelerator leaks out of any bottle I've tried, even with the original red inner seal tight in the original bottle. Double bottle and double bag it if you have to pack it for airline travel.

I've used patch out and it is just as simple as the wipe out foam. It just works quicker because it is twice as concentrated. Just soak a patch,push it through, let it sit for atleast 6 hours and then patch it out. I have found that if you clean atleast every 30 rounds you only have to apply it once to keep the barrel clean.

Hi Wipe Out and Patch Out are not redily available here in Australia and can not be sent by post. If you have a match barrel they are notbrequired as the carbon and jacket fouling is easily removed with Montana 50BMG. It works and does not drynthe surface off the barrel like the wipe out type cleaners and the GM engine cleaner is carsonagenic causing cancer with exposure.

Just try the Montana 50BMG you won't need anything else and does not remove your finish on you're stoky amd barreled action like the above mentioned solvents WILL.

Thanks for that Bill,

Just reading your report on your rifle, it sounds like you have 2 on the go ? Have you got a rem and waiting to put the Lawton together ?

You mentioned that someone in the VRA had a contact for it ? Could you send me a PM with his no. and I'll give him a call ?

Thanks again

Rifles on the go

Hi I actually have 4 on the go.

The first is the Lawton 7000 in 338WBX with a Folding A5L and fluted Lawton barrel.

The second is me Remington model7 I have fitted a muzzle break snd am building a stock it has a folding mechanism and a M4 colapsable but and pistol grip with an alloy block msking the adapter for the Ace stock parts and a machined laminated forend.

The third is a Brno Fox that I picked up for $100 so I fitted a Remington Sendero 7mm barrel at 17" then fluted it and chambered it for a shortened 7mmTCU so it feeds through the factory removal 222 magazine. I am painting the action and barrel OD green and fitting it to an uninleted Boyds Blaster stock.

The third is my new F Class rifle it is on a Lawton 7500 short mag action dual port. it will be a 6 and 7mm switch barreled rifle.

The first cartridge is a 6mm/55SMc the other is a 7mm called 7mmBSM. It has a 60 degree shoulder reduced case taper and a .425" long neck. I am making the stock out off rare Australian timbers laminated 1/2" thick placed horizontaly with epoxy and carbon fyber between each layer.

Cheers Bill
