Re: Stock Polishing Question

Thanks for the input guys. I fired a 3 shot 9 and 9/16ths inch group at 1,150 yards this morning with it. Not the best that I've done with it but I did notice because of the wax it moved around on me more than I like. Gonna have to at least get the turtle wax off of it. Any ideas on doing this without too much more work?

    Anywhere that sells automotive refinish supplies will sell a "wax & grease" remover product. It's used in the bodyshop business to remove wax prior to repairing/refinishing painted parts.

    +1 on Joels Truoil comment. Easiest way to get a factory stock to look nice without a ton of work. Truoil can be used as the grain filler, finish, and then steel wooled/buffed to the any desired gloss.
