A school would be very cool if you can afford it. I learned myself and through the guys on this site. It's all about practice

Re: Need your opinions on my 30-06

First I'm very glad to have misunderstood about your dad, tickled he is OK. I'm in the beginning stages of helping a 10 year old friend get started so this is how I plan to proceed. We'll work the .22's and .223 a bit, but I've got a 30-06 I plan to have him in before summer ends. 1) Make sure it's clean for real, every one on this site has probably got a good deal on a rifle that wouldn't shoot and did nothing but clean it to have a good shooter. 2) Verify all screws scope, and stock are tight. Stripping the heads or knuckles not necessary. 3) This particular rifles crown needs to be freshened a bit, and I'm going to put a muzzle brake on, something with no ports out the bottom a little more prone friendly. 4) Reloading, it's best to start with quality components, but there are differences of opinion what that means. The Lapua brass I ordered got here today, bullets will be 168 grain match hybrids. I have no experience with the brass or bullet, but it will help keep it interesting for me, and those 2 companies maintain a presence on this site. I'll start bottom of the chart and strive for good 100 yard groups, when that's good we'll move to 200, and so on, as well increase charge as we go. Chronograph helpful but not absolutely necessary. Anyway thats pretty much it.

I like that idea, I don't think my dad really cleaned it the proper way the very few times he did with a rod guide and a strong rod I think he used aluminum. I want to do that and make loads and go to the range.I also need to practice with the 30-06 as practice makes almost perfect. Is jb bore cleaning supplement good in rifles I use it in my air rifles.thanks guys for your wisdom!

Re: Need your opinions on my 30-06

i like a variable [power scope. the votec at 279 is a great buy. i use jb's in a lot of my rifles . a 30-06 is a great round. if you do not reload i would start with that and a good scope. and i would load 168 bergers 030 of the lands. either varget or I4064.
