    I've had trouble with them coming apart if I had to tap a stuck patch through.

    The Montana Extreme design is a stronger design in this regard I think:

    I did and I had to put my foot in my mouth, because when I got there i was telling him I found something better (gunzilla) and you should have seen the grin on his face when that bright blue patch came out of the barrel.
    Love ya dad! haha

    if I could only get the 5.56 to shoot better than four inches at 154yrds......

    We have tiptons but I recently picked up a gun slick that I like better than the Tipton (on the handle anyway) because the tiptons back button where you usually pust is directly attached to the rod so if you push there the jag does not follow the lands... High priced rods for such a rookie mistake. My new gun slick doesn't have this issue but by no means is it a high priced unit.

    Thanks for checking out our shooting. Lots of practice and a great teacher/spotter made all those shots possible. I was actually preping brass for reloading with dad and got to thinking. The first three emptys in the case I knew were the last three of load development with the 230gr tactical hybrid otm Berger when it first came out and therest of the 38 had put something in a freezer. The gun has a pretty good record going....
