Saw it on gunbroker for 569 at Fin Feather and Fur (semi local store) Figured I'd save 50 on getting it shipped and transfered so I got it...Kinda dissapointed at the store though...I asked for a bore guide for a cleaning rod and I got the blank stare...He had no clue what I was talking about.

You will like your new rifle! A bore guide is a must. I have one that inserts at the muzzle but they make them that insert from the receiver?

I know this may sound stupid ...but why would you want a muzzle bore guide ? I have always been told you always clean from the chamber out and you never pull back over the crown ? I'm new to decent bolt guns so hopefully this doesn't sound to dumb...lol

I've read that as well. But the way I clean, I don't think it makes much difference at least for me. I use nylon brushes. Cleaning from the chamber out, requires a cleaning rod that is about 12" longer than the barrel.

I picked up a dewey cleaning rod for .270 and up caliber and a Hoppes universal bore guide. Seems to work good...I couldn't believe how dirty bore was for buying it brand new.

They usually test fire them at the factory... then don't clean them. I always clean any new gun thoroughly before shooting it!

yea I always clean my new ones also. It seems like they fired a whole box while testing mine. I've never seen a new gun so dirty. I have brushed it and ran about 30 patches out the barrel and I'm still getting dirt on the patches.

You might need to brush the bore some more, it should only take a few patches to get it cleaned out after the brush has done it's work. What kind of solvent/cleaner are you using?
