    Lebowski's precision rifle money pit thread

    I'm leaning towards the Dewey but I keep hearing that the only option is Lucas.

    Iíve been using some from Sinclair Intíl for years. Opaque white plastic with O ring. My personal opinion is that with occasional, non aggressive cleaning routine, this is more than adequate.

    I've always used the cheap Tipton one.

    Most barrels need at least an initial cleaning to remove copper after 50 or so rounds (assuming you don't do "break-in" procedure which is really just a way to avoid a more substantial initial cleaning). Different calibers can certainly get away with less copper cleaning, but most will see some type of accuracy degradation at some point.

    I hate cleaning, but not doing it can definitely affect accuracy. This cleaning procedure from Caylen Wojcik is pretty simple: https://moderndaysniper.mykajabi.com...rifle-cleaning

    Iíve got one of these on order and theyíre known for shooting factory ammo well, at the expense of having a tight chamber cut for factory ammo and they can get a carbon ring easily.

    I got one the Lucas bore guides from 6mmbr.com. Really like it.

    What sort of accuracy degradation do you see?

    I never got into true precision rifles, have never shot beyond 600 and have never bothered measuring groups with anything more than a ruler...so, I'm just curious. I've only ever cleaned bores for general maintenance/corrosion prevention, not necessarily specifically for accuracy.

    It depends on the barrel.

    As soon as I think a gun might not be shooting as well, I'll clean, so I might not be the best person to ask. I usually see it as a small change. A rifle that is a definite 3/4 minute gun that will no longer shoot under a minute.

    I had a .308 barrel that never seemed to need cleaning. At the time, I didn't realize that there was as much barrel to barrel variance, so I never really let it go to see if it would ever foul to the point of causing problems.
