Re: BAT Action owners- question on field use
I have that action and have hunted with it for 2 years. My guns are not safe queens, I hunt with them and haul them around A LOT!
I've not had a single problem with my BAT (338 Allen Mag). I do have the spiral fluted bolt, which Kirby told me would help with keeping junk from jamming the bolt in the action.
At night, if it'sdirty, I just take the bolt out and wipe it down. I run a clean bore snake through it. I also run my bolt dry (no oil), because out here in the west, dust is the devil and I've had better luck running things completely dry and keeping an eye on the rust.
Hope this helps, I'll be interested in how your 375AM shoots (I'm sure it will be a tack driver).
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.
My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives
