;D

It was the only one of the three rifles that I shot yesterday that I was really pleased with the way it shot.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I was waiting for the, “I told you so.”  ;D
Honestly, with as bad as the bore looks, I have no idea why it would shoot at all, but I'm happy it does

Sometimes the best way to clean these old bores is to shoot them.  Some pits turn out to be various bits of old crap and lead.  My shorty trapdoor I swear has over 100 years of lead blowby soldered to the metal by undersized smokeless loads.  The more I shoot it with proper BP loadings, the better it looks.

Most of the pits in this one didn't show up until after I cleaned it. I was hoping that shooting it might help. It wasn't that I was afraid to shoot it; just afraid that I wouldn't be able to hit anything with it. ::)

Just make sure you have Ned shoot it, so you know it's the rifle and not you . . .

With my penchant for breaking guns, he may not want me to shoot it.  But I'd really like to!

Hi
If you slug the bore and you have to tap the ball the whole way down, that's a good thing.  It don't always happen though.  In short, it could be worse.

Wouldn't that be the process if I couldn't hit anything with it?  ::)

Oh, WTH. Ever since I bought the Spencer from you and had the front sight fall off before I had a chance to shoot it, it seems like you must have rubbed off on me 'cause I'm breaking guns at least as often as you. I broke my M1a last year for cripes sakes! :o How do you break an M1a? ::)

Hi

Yeah, that ain't happening. I already know that from cleaning it. There's a really rough, loose area about 2" in from the muzzle

Have you considered fire lapping the bore ?
I think I'll keep shooting and cleaning it and see what happens.

I don't think you're in my league yet.  I've broken an M1A, an M1, a Remington 870, a Ruger Vaquero, a Mini 14................

Yeah...maybe not quite.

I've wore out a mini-14. Does that count?
