I'm needing advice on how to look after my CF and would be very grateful of any opinions on here!
I just got all the cleaning equipment recently. My first question is how often do I clean the barrel? (I always give a quick spray with the leiga stuff when the gun gets wet). If the barrel is cleaned the rifle will take a few rounds to get back to zero so would leaving it 'dirty' damage the barrel?
As for the actual cleaning does this sound ok?
Fit the bore guide,(not entirely sure how this is done but I assume it's straight forward). Put a patch on and give it a good soak with bore cleaner,(butches bore cleaner) and run that down the barrel. Then the same with a dry patch until they start to come out clean?
The gunsmith told me to sit the moderator on the top of a heater for a while to dry out aswell.
Your opinions on this method would be very much appreciated!! And also if there is anything I missed out I'd be glad to hear it!
The safelty and shooting I get fine, just really don't want to damage the bore!
Many thanks in advance for any help!!
