Re: cleaning rifle itself?
I figured there might be some good differences in what people do. I got out my 1962 Model 70 .264 Westerner the other day and was looking it over. I was shocked at how dirty it was. Terrible on my part. I am ashamed to be honest. My thoughts were to give it a good scrub down inside the barrel with Kroil, remove the stock, and then spray the outside down with some brake cleaner and then oil it down good with Kroil. I wasnt sure if the Kroil might be too much to leave on the gun in storage? I also have Remoil and Butch's gun oil on the shelf as well.
Once this gun is done, then I plan on doing my Sako 7mmSTW and my new to me, .340 Weatherby that is in need of a good hard scrubbbing too. The Weathrby is the Alaskan model with the Nickle coating so I wasn't sure if I needed to do something different for it?
