I like the Montana Extreme cleaning products, but there are members on here that forgot more than I know. My limited experience is, gun doesn't just stop shooting good, and there is a right way to clean a bore from copper fouling.
Agreed. Try some of this. I agree with the scope comments too. I hope it works out. I’ve always been impressed with factory Brownings, particularly A-bolts and I really hope their QC is not going south. This is the second thread recently on X-bolts with issues and it’s concerning.Copper fouling. Make sure to clean with a copper removing product and white patch until no blue residue.
I shot those groups for 3 months consistently, even out to 600 hundred yards I was hitting pop cans consistentlyHow many groups did this rifle shoot that were like the target posted when it was shooting good? Those other groups are probably what 2.5" at 200 yards? It could be alot of things. Mirage, ammo, scope parallax or you as the shooter. That first group was really special but I'd highly doubt a hunting rifle would produce those groups on a regular basis. We all have those groups where the stars align and everything came together...or at least the bullets did. I'd still want better accuracy then what your getting as well.
I don't see anything on the label that specifies it is for gun cleaning ( maybe I'm just not seeing it). What I do see is that it says is it penetrating oil. Switch to a product made specifically for cleaning the fouling AND copper from rifle barrels.This is the product I've been using
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
