Default Review-Tubb's Final Finish Bullets

In an effort to get my Savage 110FLCP 25/06 Copper Fouling problem solved I thought I'd give this system developed by David Tubb a shot before I just pull this barrel off and order a custom barrel.
The kit consist of 5 sets of 10 bullets with different abrasives applied to each set.If you don't reload,they also offer loaded ammo in most common calibers.
I followed the directions and loaded all 5 sets of bullets,these were 117gr/.257 caliber,and this rifle so far hasn't liked 117gr bullets at all at the range so maybe these will help.








Now this is a TIME consuming project.Shoot the first set of bullets,completely clean the barrel.Shoot another set,completely clean barrel. So on,and so on,until your finally done!
Since I work long hours,and only have a couple hours of daylight left when I get home,it has taken me about 2 weeks to do this.

What's the verdict?

Since I didn't have much daylight left when I was doing this,I didn't take too many photo's.I did take a few though.
The many cleaners that I used in the process,along with the electric bore cleaner that I also wrote a thread about.





Here's what the patches looked like after soaking the barrel with the foam cleaners after shooting each set of bullets.You can see that the 1st & 2nd patches look bad,but the 3rd thru 5th are starting to improve greatly.



Do these bullets work? I think they have improved this barrel,but only a trip to the range will tell.
I do know that the barrel is alot easier to clean now.I think it was time and money well spent so far. THB

I had a 110 FP and it didnt like the 117 grainers also. I soaked it in Butche's Bore Shine to end the problem. It liked the 85 grn Noslers best and then the 115 Bergers being the heaviest wasn't to awful.

Good luck in your endeavors....Paul
