    I'm a bit of a cleaning fanatic. I put a bore solvent through after every sesion. If rounds
    have been fired, it gets a clean.

    As Twnorman was saying, you may find the bolt will hit the scope and prevent you from being
    able to cycle the weapon. The original Nagants that were made into sniper rifles had a
    modification to the b...

    You want to heat it enough to soften the thread sealant(to the point that it smokes). But what

    Reboring removes a layer of metal from the inside of the barrel, making the hole larger. Maybe

    smoother and more consistent than a factory one, again improving accuracy. So many things
    affect accuracy...

    Spent cartride case isn't ejecting correctly? Sounds like a unserviceable ejector. Inspect it
    for wear on the front lip and cracks on the body.. is the ejector contacting the cartridge case
