Thread: .22 wmr

    .22 wmr

    Hoping to get a bolt action in the above as variation now come through. Any advice on cleaning the barrel, as I don't normally bother with my standard .22 RF.

    Many thanks,

    Why treat it any different to a .22lr.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Just wondered as I think people clean their .17hmrs, and this is similar.

    Some do and some don't, the .17hmr is a great divider of opinion in many respects.

    Because the bullets are HV and copper jacketed?

    I seldom, if ever, clean mine. Don't worry about the copper. "Deep Cleaning" as some of you guys say, will play hell with accuracy. A drop of oil on a patch down the bore, three dry patches. Done.~Muir

    Many HV .22lr are also jacketed, doesn't mean that we scrub out the barrels after using them in our bunny rifles.
    I don't know if you can remember the Ruger single six revolver with the interchangeable cylinders but a pal used to have one and there was certainly no loss of accuracy when changing cylinders so I don't see why the .22wmr should be treated anything other than a faster .22lr.

    Used to clean mine after every use and couldnt get consistantancy.
    Got fed up with it.....gave up cleaning it and its a bob on now. Wont clean again until accuracy tails off.

    Depending on what Ammo you use, you may get a bit of debris, I clean the bolt head, mag/action and a pull through the barrel every time keeps it tip top and only takes a minute to do

    ammo - hornady 30gr. BT are very accurate in my weihrauch
