    Yes it does seem odd to wear out a .22 barrel...I've often wondered if the rifling doesn't get
    leaded in. The term microgroove conjures images in my head of many small lands/grooves so I
    wondered is s...

    I realize it isnít easy to wear out a .22 barrel, but I think I did it. I have a 1963 vintage
    39A that I got new. As a teenager I shot it so much that accuracy fell off. I didnít really

    Some people are obviously having too much fun. Glad it worked out for you. My 452 is sighted

    my heavy barr...

    Made by Remington, Eddystone and Winchester, mine is a 1918 Winchester. The only real problem

    It has much...

    I shot 5 rounds with my CZ 452 today. None of the bullets hit the target, which is 25 yards
    away. Two out of 5 bullets got stuck inside the barrel. I used boresnake to clear the barrel
    everytime I mad...
