I am still scrubbing out Copper after a recent range session,
60 rounds of Nosler Accubonds, in three hours or so.
This is the most Copper I have encountered yet, did the Barrel break-in on this Sako .270wsm when brand new, usually cleans up easy and quick, have just over a thousand rounds fired through it,
I'm wondering how in depth do you guys take Barrel cleaning while at the range ??
I sent one Butch's patch and two dry, down the barrel after every ten rounds or so,
On the last batch of twenty, I think accuracy was affected by either Barrel Heat, (it was 30F, and I tried to wait but there was a cumulative heating that I had not the patience for I guess toward the end of the sixty)
or more likely by the copper I found in there at home later.
How do you experienced guys approach this, I'll be stickin to a max of forty in the future, and thinking of a better cleaning procedure, maybe brushing, and a more aggressive Copper remover (?)
the third patch was coming out pretty clean, of powder fouling anyway,
What d'ya think ??
