  • “6. Proceed onto the next task” would refer to move on to the next task since your barrel is broken in.

  • I read an article written by a Top Shooter his last name is TUBB or TUBBS. gun goes in a low heat 170 oven, HOT Soapy water scrub /w/ brass brush. then lap the barrel /w/ 3 grits of compound. It takes some time BUT it WILL tighten your group.I did my SAVAGE Mod 112 .22-250 had the trigger honed to 1 3/4# & OH! SO SWEET ! HOPE THIS HELPS SOME BODY.

  • Referring to cleaning proceedure #6 it states one should proceed to the next task. What is the next task?
