Boy, ain't that the truth! Got mine Thursday and I have almost cleaned every centerfire I own. I took Friday off and it took all day to clean three rifles (6mmBR, 6.5-284 & .270 Allen Magnum). The 6BR was the easiest, only 3-400 rounds shot, Shilen barrel and not an over bore cartridge at all. The 6.5-284 (Lothar Walther) and .270 AM (Lilja) both had "attempts" at a carbon ring. A little Kroil and J-B (Non-embedding bore cleaning compound) and these were gone. Neither of these three were coppered up bad at all.It’s amazing what you learn with a $50 borescope.
I just saw these... It is like a bore brush but rubber intended to squeegee the bore. Should be a good plug or just whittle a cork form a wine bottle to keep it simple!Curious.....are there any type of rubber plugs(or any thing...maybe a heavy felt plug) a person can buy and shove down into the barrel...so a person can fill the area needing the cleaning with a solvent....let it soak really well....
omgI'm seeing one firecracked plaza o' gatorskin. Looks like that barrel is either cooked or just about there. The streak is, I think, the rifling but it's been eroded down to non-existence. Borescopes, IMHO, should not be owned/used by people that don't know how to interpret the results. It just ends up with a lot of unnecessary hand wringing and it's not like you can fix anything you find short of replacement.
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
