Anyone know anything I can do to help keep an SKS barrel in good shape beyond cleaning it. It's a Russian SKS from 45, and I plan to start shooting a ton of corrosive Czech ammo through it.
I guess, I've never shot mil-surplus before and I know its corrosive, but I don't know anything about the effects. I figure it will eat away at the barrel, but will cleaning take care of it? How soon after shooting will the barrel start to take damage - ie do I want to clean it at the range or can it wait till I get home...? Will it be bad after each shot?
I know that a chromed barrel is resistant, but this isn't chromed...
Oh, and is it safe to shoot milsurp through this thing. I know its a military gun, but the Polytech M305 has ammo issues with milsurp and I know it was based on a military design...
Thanks for any info!
