Re: How many rounds between cleaning ?

I clean every 15-20 rounds...works for me. Having said that both JE and Bigbuck make some good points. There are variables, you'll have to play around to find out where that is for your setup.

    The riflesmith that built my 243AI recommended cleaning every 20 shots. I've tried to stick to that and the rifle is still shooting sub-MOA after over 1000 rounds.

    I must admit I clean mine when it is being put away for awhile, so it might be after one shot.
    I was taught that leaving them uncleaned could cause corrosion in the barrel, NZ's climate is relatively wet. Might be a hangover from the old .303 corrosive primer days.

    Stu.
