Thread: Crown Care

  1. #1

    Crown Care

    For those that don't know:

    Many people do not know the problems that are caused by the use of a moderator. The gases that are kept inside have a tendancy to corrode the rifle crown and indeed the rifling inside the barrel.

    It is therefor recommended to remove the moderator after use (not after each shot, but after your outing)

    I was an over enthusiastic user of the WD with my T8 and always took it off..

    Before each outing i pulled a dry swab through rifle and mod

    Still had a mighty smoke cloud disrupting view of deer and direction if a runner..

    Less is more as they say

    Oh yes! Been there too with my T8 after taking the care instructions very much to heart. Mighty and rather fragrant smoke cloud. Reminded me of my student days...

    it just has happened to me, fitted a bipod the other day and set off to check zero, after about a dozen shots i was a biy miffed that I couldnt get better than anout 4" at 150yds so ran into rfle craft this afternoon and he checked her over and found the crown had corroded and about the 1st 2-3mm of rifeling at the muzzle was slightly pitted, so need a re crown to get rid of the problem, barrel needs to be floated now as using a bipod, collecting her tomorrow afternoon and will have another go before the feo lady comes round, will definatley be taking the mod off now after each session
