I have to say, that is the worst fouled barrel I have ever seen. My only close comparison is a 1911 barrels, shot with light loads resulting in incomplete burns, and alternating between lead and copper bullets. It took the old RCBS electrolysis cleaning kit to get them clean, and the chunks coming from them looked like plating falling off.It seems to be able to hit what it's aimed at, it's an open sight rifle, the receiver on this model is pre war, so it can't take a scope rail for any kind of accuracy test.
And if it was mine, I would not let any solvent other than Hoppes # 9 sit in that old of a barrel over night, I'd attack first with Boretech C4, then a non ammonia copper solvent, and keep doing this routine, if indeed you want to clean it. when done neutralize the barrel with Kroil or a light oil, let that stuff sit for awhile.
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
