BUT What a load of bullshit, too charge shooters to fire a couple of fouling shots into the mound before a days shooting... Dont nominations cover this added expense????

Re: interesting barrel run in

Re: Pussy pads otherwise known as recoil absorbers

I wouldnt put a 13 year old behind either of those cartridges, recoil/noise will frighten them, and a flinch will develop.. My suggestion is build something like a 223 or 6br in a heavy build.. The more comfortable they feel behind the rifle the more enjoyable, this will allow them to focus more on...

Re: Abrasive cleaners and copper fouling

Abrasives, are not the problem its the people using them incorrectly that is the issue... If you have hard carbon you have copper... ( carbon is hydroscopic another issue). Longer you let the carbon build accuracy will be compromised not to mention the harder the carbon is to remove as it becomes l...

Looking at all those cartridges they are all very similar, id be looking specifically at brass quality and availability before making a decision... (Im glad I got my norma XC brass when I did) The Dash...
