Re: Favorite 32-20 Load and 25-20 too!

Dennis I like the bore snake too but as a quick range cleaner. They've proven very useful. I store mine in an old plastic food container that doesn't react to solvent. (Philly cream cheese) For a good cleaning I always go full brush/patch/brush/ patch/ patch/ patch/ patch....patch...patch...route. I...

Re: Favorite 32-20 Load and 25-20 too!

Merlin, the biggest advantage is with the powder to case ratio with low velocity loads. The whole problem of power position is gone. I've even found them to shoot better than .357s loaded to the same velocity even with the extra bullet jump to the lands. The powder ring isn't as big of an issue as c...

Re: Favorite 32-20 Load and 25-20 too!

I wish they made a PC rifle in 38 sp. I've had good luck shooting those even in a .357 mag chamber. The powder to case ratio is perfect. The extra long chambers of .357 mag aren't perfect for it but in a bind for ammo it works fine.

Re: Leather Vest

I'm not a vest wearer but I would wear one for the CLA animals as I shoot a crescent butt stock 30-30.

Re: Silhouette stock for hunter rifle.

nemo, most air rifles are not close in dimension to a Rem 700. It's kind of an apples and oranges thing. I can't think of two rifles in my collection that are similar in their feel except my Ruger 77/22 and my Ruger M77. Are you starting from scratch or is this a modification of a gun you already ha...

Re: 32 H&R from 32-20 lever rifle?

Have you tried lapping it with the JP bore paste? The barrels are not going to get any worse... There are some lapping pastes that are overly aggressive and I would stay away from those but a mild lapping paste may bring back the barrels. I've never tried the Tubb break in bullets but that may be an...

Re: 32 H&R from 32-20 lever rifle?

I tried the shooters choice and the smell alone made me switch. Hoppes it ain't. Butches isn't so pleasant either but its bearable.

Re: 32 H&R from 32-20 lever rifle?

I use Butches Bore Shine. I've left it in a barrel for a week without etching the barrel. The brand Bore Tech claims you can leave it in forever without etching and my gun Smith swears by it.

Re: 32 H&R from 32-20 lever rifle?

That will do it. I had a black powder rifle (rifled bore) that I forgot to clean. The barrel was junk but I was able to bring it back somewhat by lapping the bore. JP bore paste wouldn't doing it so I went with Clover paste thats used for lapping valves. It's very aggressive and would need to be lap...

Re: 32 H&R from 32-20 lever rifle?

CamP don't know how you burned out a barrel on a 30-30. I've been shooting mine longer than that and it still looks new even under a bore scope. It even has a funny spot in the,bore where the barrel transitions from round to octagonal and it shoots better than I do. You may want to just try recrowni...
