I went to the range last week and was shooting Federal 30-06 Spring Barnes® Triple-Shock® X Bullet® 165 grain. I ended up shooting a group at 100 yards somewhere between a 50 cent and a quarter. I had shot about 50 rounds and had only used a bore snake. I was just recently told that was not going to cut it as far as cleaning it. I cleaned it this week with some sweets and shooters choice. I will never make that mistake again. I plan on going an shooting it again with a week or 2 just to make sure I still have a good group with it.
Well I knew I had posted asking for help before I got my rifle and wouldn't you know it I couldn't find it cause it was under a different name lol. Well after so much time waiting for the chance to draw blood with it I ended up drawing blood 3 times within a week. Here is some pictures of a couple of the pigs I harvested.
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
