Hi all, new here.

Question, I purchased a Weatherby deluxe recently in 460 Wby. I cannot find a bore guide anywhere to save my life for 458 cal and bigger. What do yall do with these bigger guns? Without a guide all that cleaner is gunna flow into the wood stock. Maybe clean it with the stock off?
 
The 460 Weatherby chamber diameter (10.6mm) is very similar to a 410 shotgun chamber diameter (10.4mm) so you could consider using a 410 cleaning kit
 
Bore-Max and MTM top out at .375 but it really is a non-issue. Just put some patches on the follower. I clean up to .685 with a .375 guide. All good.

Or look at possum hollow. I just checked with a friend and he confirmed this is where he had his made. I’ve never seen the need, but they will apparently make you a .458.

Did possum go under? Left emails and multiple phone calls to no responses

Hello,
Would you consider selling just the Barnes 235's and 250g TTSX's?
