Just got back from a 4 day hunt in Yanert Valley (totally skunked, only saw 1 cow the whole trip, no bulls and no bears! Didn't see anyone with meat and only heard 1 set of shots the whole trip. Lame.) It rained every day and frosted over at night 2 of the 4 days. Despite wiping my blued Rem 700 nightly with Rem oil wipes I still developed rust in the nooks and crannies of the rifle and in a couple spots where the rifle rubbed against the metal on my pack.
Any suggestions about how to keep rust off of a blued rifle in a wet climate? Anything I could coat it with? Next rifle I'm buying will definitely be stainless, but I do love my 30-06 700, shoots great and is nice and light.
