It like Ineff says, you need to be intimate with your firearms. I never clean my T/C 7mm-08 until after deer season. The first shot out of a clean barrel in that firearm is alway a flier. After that, half-dollars at a 100 yds.

Cleaned after every trip to the range, sometimes cleaned out of boredom, fingerprints wiped off daily
