Re: centerfire rod guides

Lucas is the best I have handled, my franken-guide pieced together from the parts I liked from 2 others works rather well though

Re: centerfire rod guides

I have a couple Lucas bore guides and they are top notch.

I just wish he made some up and had them on hand for the more popular standard stuff like a model 700 in 223, 243, 308.
