    Gun cleaning

    How often should I clean my barrel I have fired 60 shots since last time is this right it's a .243

    Not too fussed about how many shots, but how long since last cleaned!
    To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

    Honestly think you should leave a precision instrument seven months between cleaning?

    Probably not . cleaned now so if you clean it and put it away for 7 months doesn't mean it dirty When you bring it out ?

    After a stalk the other day with a friend I happened to ask him about cleaning. He looked at me & replied "I've never cleaned any of my guns."
    "Never??" I replied...
    I then asked if any of his rifles or shotguns showed any signs of internal pitting or corrosion.
    He replied "Don't know, never looked.!

    Hmmm no two people will agree - personally I've had two .243's; one didn't like being cleaned (wouldn't shoot straight) and the other I clean after every use with no ill-effect...

    My mate who's ex military never ever cleans his and he's the best shot I've seen in person.


    Whatever works for the individual I reckon!
