Oh, you VLS owners, do you get copper fouling the last .5" of barrel at muzzle end? I do and its a pain to remove. And its only at that spot after shooting.

[/ QUOTE ] I have that on my VLS and VS. Must be a barrel thing. It's annoying, but does not seem to hurt accuracy.

the problem I mentioned has since vanished after sending 200 rounds down the tube. What copper I can visibly see at the muzzle, now comes out without much work [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Im also using nothing but 168grain matchkings now, where as before I was switching out between off the shelf American Eagle FMJ's, Federal softpoints, and some Remington core lokts.

Oh and you're correct, It does Not interrupt accuracy. Infact my VLS simply shoots better the dirtier it gets. Obviously theres a point where the accuracy drops off but I dont even go for good groupings until Ive fired 15 or so rounds after a cleaning.

Skinny shooter I like your VLS what kind of sling is on your rifle and where can you order one

Hi Redbone, I use the Model 1907 slings from Turner: Link

If you go to their FAQs page, there are 2 links on how to attach and use that style sling.

Before you buy, check out this sling from Tactical Intervention Specialists: Link
I've been thinking of buying one.
Here's a thread on slings: http://longrangehunting.com/ubbthreads/s...=true#Post73132

Hi Redbone, I've been off the board alot due to work and missed your reply.
Not sure if you are asking a different question than your previous one that I answered. I only have the Model 1907 sling on the VLS and it also wears an Eagle Industries Stock Pack. http://www.eagleindustries.com/ProdD...p?PartNoID=495
Hope that helps.
