    crown cleaning

    Right i had a lad pop in to meet me tonight and he asked if i could have a look at the crown on his 222,


    Foo kin l, i have never seen a crown with so much carbon on it as this, and he wanted to know why he was not getting a tight group,

    so i had to clean it off,

    now before i tell you what i did,

    what do you use to clean a crown with, we have not been able to shoot it as he had to go to work and i have bad weather like the rest of the southwest of the country

    I never have a problem, I just keep everything scrupulously clean after use. Ok I know that many prefer to shoot with some fouling in the barrel but I cannot bring myself to store a gun with essentially corrosive and abrasive compounds in the barrel, and anyway it is simple enough to fire a shot or two before departing on a shooting trip.

    I have a recessed crown on one of my rifles, i had'nt noticed ,but had a build up of carbon,i carefully chipped it off with a small spikey dental tool i have, did it under a magnifier and it came off in small flakes. Cant help thinking that the recess acts like a carbon trap between the crown and the mod...
