yes. then i use a clean one and apply a coating of it to protect the metal from rusting. Kroil is one of my most used products now as it's very versatile for many uses. i even use it for a bore solvent. IMO, for wetter hunting climates and longer storage times between shootings or usage, maybe a heavier oil my be better. just a thought to ponder on.

I clean my guns I leave in south Louisiana with motor oil. They don't rust and the motor oil is nasty enough to prevent anyone from borrowing them. I just wipe them down with whatever motor oil that is handy and put them in a gun sock. When I am ready to hunt I spray the gun down with CLP. Then I wipe the gun down with whatever kind of gun oil I can borrow.

There are only a few places in the US that a gun will rust faster than in LA. Most of those places are in FL or you have to swim to get there.

I've really enjoyed reading this thread with the various members projects along with favorite hunting rifles,a very good thread.

I really haven't done much modifying to my bolt action rifles other than replacing a few stocks,adjusting triggers,and mounting scopes. I did refinish the stock on my first 22 rifle years ago in my teens.

Here's a few of my favorite hunting/shooting bolt action rifles.

Remington 700 bdl chambered in 7mm rem mag that i've been hunting with nearly 25 years now,it's extremely accurate.
Years later I installed the HS Precision stock and later upgraded the scope to a Leupold VXIII 4.5-14x50 illuminated reticle 30mm tube.

Remington 700 bdl vssf chambered in 22-250 with a Leupold VXIII 6.5-20x40mm EFR w/Target knobs.

Remington 700 bdl chambered in 6mm rem.
I picked this rifle up at a estate action at a really good price,installed the Bell carlson medalist stock,and added the Leupold VXIII 4.5-14x40mm

Thank you Axxe,i've been collecting for a while now,mainly hunting rifles.

Thanks for starting such a excellent thread pertaining to bolt action rifles!

I've really enjoyed the 6mm rem. it seems to do really well with 95 gr. Nosler Partitions,actually i've shot several brands and weights and the 6mm rem has done pretty well all of them,I also load up some of the 55gr. Nosler Ballistic Tips to around 4000 ft/per/sec that aren't too shabby
I bought the rifle on the cheap,no one wanted the 6mm rem?

I've always been a reloader/handloader,so we're always going to auctions with shooting supplies.
What's funny before I bought the rifle I was at another auction a couple years before full of reloading equipment and supplies. Again no one wanted any of the 6mm supplies?Brand new sealed boxes of bullets,open boxes bullets,just bullets and bullets? Bought all the 6mm bullets for 3 dollars or less a box,so I needed a 6mm rifle haha

you're welcome! i have really enjoyed this thread and many thanks to all who have posted to it. thank you for sharing your rifles as well.

honestly i am just not as familiar with the 6mm calibered rifles as i'd like to be. most of my experiances have been with the 243, because of my father having had one in a Winchester M70 he has had for many, many years.

the 6mm rem. sounds very interesting and something for me to learn more about.

i like how you think! buy reloading supplies then justify the need for a new rifle! very clever and i like it!

Those Winchesters are some of the very nicest rifles,along with the 243,what a whitetail hunting package.

The 6mm Rem and Win 243 are so close together in performance they are nearly identical,the 6mm cartridge is based from a necked down 257 Roberts case with a bit larger case capacity than the 243 and a longer case neck.

Thanks,not sure the wife liked that reasoning?,I need another gun because i've got all these bullets! hahaha
