Thread: Stainless vs Chrome-Moly

    Stainless vs Chrome-Moly

    How many of us have both materials & who has noticed how much easier one is to clean than the other?........ My old Sako Finnbear was the first on the cleaning station this week, & everything else stainless is back in the safe.

    Keith, When you have chucked upwards of 200+ rounds downrange, something is getting dirty!

    I have Sako 85 Hunter .308 in blued steel and Sako Varmint Laminated .243 in stainless steel. I have given them both a thorough cleaning (copper solvent in bore, chamber, stock off etc) within the last few weeks following the exact process and cleaning agents and can't say that I noticed much difference in time and/or ease of cleaning of either.
    In both cases only a couple of shots brought them back to zero.

    Also to those who have had bad corrosion experiences with stainless steel, on removal of the stock to give the action a thorough clean, not a single site of any rust spots despite me being out a few times in not so good weather recently. The Sako bead-blasted finish is superb.
