OK. So I shot the K98 today. WOW. This thing is a total tack driver. slightly under minute of angle at 100 yards, multiple times. I don't think I'll be selling it anytime soon. Shoots better than my 700 in every way, but I'll have to start reloading very soon, as decent ammo is $90 for a box of 20 (copper bullets...... comifornia).
When I cleaned it, there was an odd green substance that came out. Any help there? Did I destroy the value of the gun because of cleaning? hope not. Anyway around, I'm a very happy camper at the moment.
EDIT: Looking for camera now.... post pics soon!
