The problem here is the barrel has never been cleaned properly from the beginning, and the fouling has compounded up until this point..

Re: Copperhead projectile approval?

Alan To get the ball rolling you would need a State Association to put it to the board for approval. I would suggest asking Ken if he could handle supply first thou. Matt P Thanks Matt, asking Ken would be a first priority, if there was to be a follow on that members would benefit having his projec...

Copperhead projectile approval?

Re: Reversing a Barrel when Rechambering

That's the thing Alan the barrels bore diameter will have a taper, and if you chamber it from the other end the muzzle will be larger... (This taper will be exaggerated as the barrel is a 260 Ackley and 600 rnds old and will have worn..)

Re: Carbon cleaning methods curious after borescoping club barrels

Re: KEEP ME IN TUNE

wsftr, Basically you can never over clean a barrel in my opinion, if you condition your barrel before firing that first shot.. By conditioning i mean creating an environment in your clean barrel that replicates a barrel that's settled.. (Settled doesn't mean "dirty" your barrel has now act...
