This has probably been covered countless times before but I really don't know whats the best thing to do so I thought ask ,
I have a tikka t3 synthetic and blue a tikka 595 synthetic and stainless , x bolt synthetic and stainless and the good old ruger 1022
wood and blue, apart from the 1022 I cleaned the others religiously . I recently went on a trip and missed an easy deer and the stalker said to me
don't bother cleaning the stainless barrels as it can take several rounds for the bullets to settle, Now I was using federal fusion at the time and
I am pretty sure it was these bullets giving me the inconsistency but do I still clean or not .
The stalker was also a firearms dealer aswell so I don't know
