Re: Hitting Right On With The First Shot And Barrel Preparation.
I have nothing exotic to shoot and seldom shoot enough to degrade accuracy. However, I do have 3 rifles than absolutely do not wander from a clean first shot to the last. Others, well a couple of foulers and they're one with the universe. None are highly accurate guns, I can and have put 20+ rounds into 3/4 MOA from the Roberts, cold to hot without stopping. It copper fouled badly when new, met JB Bore Cleaner and now doesn't require great effort to clean.
I would still be reluctant to take a clean barrel hunting and seldom do so, except when still hunting bottom country. It's not a long range proposition.
