Re: Shooting New Loads, feed back please
I used to really nuts on my cleaning like winmag, i would run a bronze brush x3 100 times with montana extreme bore solvent, let sit for 15min patch till clean then repeat, THEN use wipeout accelerator and let wipeout foam sit over night.
Now i brush em pretty good and run a few patches till clean, then done. Accuracy is probably better than before. Before i would need a new brass brush every 2-3weeks, for each of my guns. I shoot every weekend, a weekend were i dont shoot 30+ centerfire rounds is the exception.
Then on the other hand, i know a guy in TX who cleans his guns 1-2times... A YEAR. This gave me goose bumps because i was in my really anal-about-cleaning phase. And he is a hunting guide, he has that gun with him almost every day and shoots it A LOT. He also has a 17 HMR that has about 8000rnds down the barrel with zero cleaning.... if you work the bolt back and forth you can have carbon flakes drop off. But that gun is still about 1.5moa at 100... so i really dont know what to think. But this is definetely not the right way to go! Heck i bet the 17 has a 14caliber barrel by now, with all that crap buildup inside it...
"Out of range" is a theoretical concept as far as I'm concerned. Send it!
