    bore cleaning question

    Just been speaking to a mate (the one with the crown of gunk)

    he said he only cleans his rifle bore from time to time. no matter what the shot count is what the weather was like etc etc.

    i clean mine after the outing if i have taken 1 or 30 shots.

    what do you guys do.

    Mine gets dried off after every trip and once a week gets a proper clean and oil, regardless of number of shots fired

    A couple of dry patches after every trip shot fired or not, a proper clean every 50 shots or so, a full strip (stock off) and clean up if it gets wet.

    6.5mmx55mm rarely clean mine mate. still manage to split a 10p piece with factory ammo at 100yds. but to be fair most i'm firing in a outing is 1-5 shots stalking 1-3(if i'm lucky when stalking) any more its a clean and re-zero of the rifle. but I have to say my rifle's fairly bombproof; even when I have a senior moment and drop it.....

    cheers lads

    like myself it gets a clean every time.

    i shot the rifle with the cruddy crown last night, and we got a 10p size 3 shot group at 100, but the trigger is set at about 1.5 lb's as he does not like light triggers in the back of a truck,

    Shouldn't be a worry, as the rifle, if with a charged magazine, should have the bolt closed on an EMPTY chamber.

    mmm

    im talking about when shooting from the back of the truck on the land, he still likes a trigger with a bit more pull req when taking the shot, we all should travel with an empty breach/chamber, but how many will admit that they don't.
