Re: up comming review; 2 rifles in 6.5 creed

Coyboy, so how's Savage and the fouling, I'm very curious because I acquire LRP of my own, took to the range and there are lots of fouling... I'm using KG-12 to get rid of copper. On mine its not just one spot where copper accumulates, its all around. I think this barrel requires good dose of J&B... What you think?

I'm only at 60-70 rounds with that gun, and I am getting fouling that I feel is typical for a factory barrel at this point. I would suspect when I hit around 200 it should fall of quite a bit.
On the TC, the scratches were possibly caused by the removal of the button, according to a tech at TC, it was not a common problem but did occur on a few barrels. So they want it sent in for a new tube.

Jim for factory class you should have picked a model 12 F-class 6.5x284, I started mine off with corbon ammo with 139 lapuas and shot 3 back to back 5 shot groups at the same half inch bullseye and made it disappear! It will shoot sub cal sized groups with my favorite recipe. Has also shot quite a few single digit 1k groups using it in IBS light gun, by far the most accurate factory rifle I've owned.

Jim, are you serious about copper foaling cleaning out on its own after 200 rounds? Do you consider any sort break in procedure? Yesterday I was short on time so I cleaned every 5 shots, but I wasn't able to get rid of the copper in the field, it was strongly embedded in the lands and between.

I just clean them every 20-30 rounds on a factory gun that fouls with copper, always getting all the copper out with bore-tech and a brush if needed.

Some point after 200 rounds the barrel "breaks in" and typically it fouls less than it did when new. Drill/reamer marks from the rifleing process generally smooth out over use.

Unless you have a bore problem like the TC than the barrel should come around, the scratches in the tc is what is promoting the fouling.

Re: up comming review; 2 rifles in 6.5 creed

Jinx I think the answer your looking for is that you always need a certain amount of copper fouling to fill in the nicks, pits, scratches, and any imperfections in the rifling. After its wore in to where it has a smooth ride when you remove the copper fouling always piss away 5 or so rounds to fill those little spots in. J&B is really only good for carbon fouling, but in my 6mms 6.5s and big 30s I use it every 40-50 rounds, only about every 100 in anything else.

Backwoods, so how about Tubb bore polishing system, which should remove imperfections in riffle barrel?
