Re: Tactical Ordinance Rifles

Dave,
That's an awesome shooting rifle you have there, congratulations. I thought my .750" group I shot today was pretty good but yours beat it. I like to shoot 3 shot groups also as the barrel heats up pretty quick when you're burning 90-100grs of powder and time is a consideration.
Also, I was wondering about copper fouling, have you found that yours fouls much? My rifle has a PacNor barrel also and even after 50rds with proper breakin it still seems to foul more than my Kreiger or Obermeyer barreled rifles, even my PSS 308.
Keep up the great shooting and please keep us posted.
Wayne

    My 338 RUM barrel (a polygonal PacNor) copper fouled a lot in the beginning but most other PacNor barrels I've had seem normal in that regard.

    I haven't cleaned this barrel yet, 16 rounds through it...I'll clean it when I reload this Lapua brass. Currently the brass is unfired and I'll want to check trajectory data, speed and grouping with a clean(er) barrel).

    About 5 patches of JB Bore paste and two of Bore Brite has reduced the fouling in several barrels. We tested the internal finish of many barrel makers a few years ago, a list from best to not as good starts like this:

    Lilja

    Obermeyer

    Krieger

    Hart

    K&P

    Shilen
