    Sellier & bellot corrosion issues??

    Hello guys,

    Has anyone here heard of or had issues with S & B ammo an barrel corrosion?
    I started using them (140gr Nosler partition) and today found considerable corrosion about an inch down the barrel from crown end. Luckily a good clean got rid of most of it. I give the barrel one quick swipe with a patch after firing the rifle and mod is removed after stalk. Let me know what you think.

    I shoot a lot of S&B about 50 at a time down the range and never noticed any rusting.

    Powder residue from any brand of cartridge can and will attract moisture and this is the cause of the trouble. If you are putting the rifle away for more than a couple of days you should run a couple of patches through to remove such residue. If you don't use the rifle a lot work on the basis of a clean barrel - ie keep it well cleaned and allowing fowling to build up.
