Re: Final finish daved tubbs

Ive tried it i probably at least a half a dozen rifles. Never saw any dramatic improvements in accuracy. None got worse either though. One thing i do notice is they foul less and there easier to clean.

I have used them several times. Sometimes they make a world of difference in accuracy.. sometimes they do nothing for accuracy. I have not had them hurt accuracy though. They also smooth out a rough barrel fairly effectively

Re: Final finish daved tubbs

I had a difficult time finding a load for my CZ 550 Ultimate Hunting Rifle 300 Win Mag.About a 2 inch group was the best I could get out of it at 200 yards.OK,but I felt like it should do a little better than that.I was thinking about getting a custom barrel put on it,but before I did,I thought I'd give Tubb's Final Finish Bullet Kit a try.I was amazed,I could see my groups start to tighten up after the first five shots.By the time I got to the last bullets in the kit,I was shooting a 1 inch group at 200 yards.That was the best this rifle had ever done.The other day I finally made it back out to the range to try a few test loads to see how it would do.I think I'll stick with this one!


I did another rifle with Tubb's Finial Finish.It was a CZ 550 30/06.It shot OK,but I thought it should do a little better.I didn't use all the courser 1 and 2 bullets,they are the ones in the top two targets.Once I got to 3,4 and 5 I shot all ten into the middle and the two bottom targets.The one out of group on the bottom left target was a scope adjustment.This was at 100yds.Looks like she tightened right up.All I can say is,I've been very happy with the results I got.
