Re: pressure signs at 1 grain over books starting load
A barrel snake is totally useless as a barrel cleaning device and can even do damage to the crown .
Rem oil is just a lubricant . However it contains Teflon which is a bad thing in a barrel as when subjected to extreme heat can produce fluorine a very corrosive material.
Only use the Rem oil outside the barrel ! Use G96 Synthetic gun oil inside the barrel or wheel bearing grease for storage .
Buy a Dewey cleaning rod . some Hart bronze brushes , some nylon brushes , a roll of chux towelling from home depot and some proper bore solvent . Like Sweets 7.62 , Montana Extreme 50 BMG or Bore tech eliminator .
Learn how to properly clean the barrel and remove any copper fouling.
This could be part of your problem the barrel is over fouled and raising pressures .
