    Annealing Made Perfect Induction Annealing Machine

    When the price comes down to somthing reasonable like $350, if it ever does, then I'd consider getting one. Meanwhile, my butane torch annealer works just fine.

    Shotgun Cleaning?

    Well, if they do touch the bore, they will cause a problem if you do it enough. That's why special care has to be taken if you handload steel shot.

    Shotgun Cleaning?

    The mild steel pellets are NOT supposed to touch the bore; that's what the wad is for.

    Hiking Rifle cartridges

    Copper fouling on my new M70

    I tried Remington's bore cleaner once; it's terrible stuff. Hoppes also isn't that good. I'm also skeptical about using products where the recommendation is to not leave it in the barrel too long. I've gone to using Wipe Out and rarely use a brush. You can leave Wipe Out in a barrel as long...

    The .308 Win for plains game

    At least when I hunted with him Marius used a 308 Winchester. He declined my offer to let try my 444 Marlin handgun and 300 Weatherby rifle.
