Bore Coat

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

Has anyone else used it yet?
What kind of results have you seen?

I Just got through treating a Tikka T3, 243 barrel with that stuff Brownells sells, Dyna Tek's Bore Coat. Gonna see if it does what they claim. While this rifle is extremely accurate, it's a pain to clean because it still copper fouls more than I consider normal. I figured this would be an excellent candidate to check the stuff out. It's gotta cure over night but no problem, it will probably be a few days before I can shoot it to cook the stuff in.

Well, I just noticed I posted this in the wrong forum, and don't see any way of deleting it and putting it where it in cleaning where it needs to go.

I read about it a while back, but have not seen any reviews. I am interested to see how it works for you.

So far, not very impressed. I finally fired the first set of recommend rounds (I did seven). Cleaning was no easier, and still had lots of copper. They do say the first cleaning might not be any better but should improve and after about three cleanings it should take very little effort. Quess we will see about that one.

Before ordering some of this stuff, I strongly recommend you go to their web site and read the whole thing. This stuff is a lot of work and you will need more than just their kit to do a gun.

Two recommendations I will make, get a lot smaller bore mop than you're caliber. I was doing a 243 and used a 22 cal bore mop and it was stil very tight and would squeeze most of the liquid solution off. Make sure your bore mop works good before soaking it.

Second, they recommend starting by running the bore mop from the muzzle end first and working it back and fourth a couple of inches at the time until you reach the chamber. Personnaly, I have a hard time dealing with working a cleaning rod from the muzzle end. I ran mine though the barrel with rod guide in place and out the muzzle, then screwed the wet bore mop on and pulled it into the barrel and worked it down as they said, I just didn't want to take a chance on hitting the crown with a hard, stainless, rod.

I will let you know how it works over the next couple of weeks of shooting and cleaning.

Bore coat is excellent stuff! If you dont get good results, you didnt do something right.

Ive done all my muzzle loaders with it and clean up is normally 2 to 3 patches.

I do about 200 strokes with jb bore paste, clean it out of the barrel and follow up with a damp patch of bore coat, swab from the breech to the muzzle in short 4" strokes and do it all the way back down. I repeat it 3 times and then let it sit for 30 minutes and do the same thing but at the muzzle end.

I've gone through 100 Thor conicals " these are 100% copper" and never once during cleaning did i find any copper fouling in the bore.

Not saying it's not, just the jury is still out on it. Like I said, after I get the three of four cleanings they say, before I make my final judgement.

200 strokes with JB Bore paste, that's never going to happen with any barrel I think much of.

I would never make one full pass through one of the hand lapped/polished barrels. Matter of fact, I currently have no intentions of ever trying it in one. It would take a whole lot more proofing before that happens. Good barrels clean easily anyway. This rifle being a factory barrel, I did use JB's enough to clean it, but I keep mine fairly clean so it only took about 20 strokes, mostly at the throat, to give me a nice, barrel metal barrel, the full length of it. It helps having a bore scope so you can see when it's clean.

I also doubt that muzzle loader is pushing that copper down the barrel at 3,500 fps. Velocity has a huge affect on how much a barrel copper fouls.

a wee bit over 2100 fps.

i noticed you said the rifle fouled up a lot when it was factory so that tells me somethings up with the bore or you're just pushing your loads to fast.

I've coated 3 or 4 rifles with UBC now. Overall, I've found it to be outstandingly good at doing exactly what it claims: drastically reducing to nearly eliminating fouling problems. Even the problem child Browning I've posted about on this board started acting like a 'regular' barrel. Only 1 barrel didn't give me what I was looking for, and after my brother got 'hold of that whole, rifle, an off-hand comment he made suggests something beyond repair was going on with it.

It's absolutely critical to have the bore clean. Clean beyond any standard that hardly any of us use. Bore scope spotless clean. And then you have to apply and cure it according to directions. It'll still work, at least sort of, if you don't follow directions, but I don't think anyone will vouch for how well.

Buy your self a can of EEZOX & go on to YouTube & watch how great this stuff works when just treated ONCE on any firearm. Iv'e been using it for years. It cleans & it's a Dry Lub & best of all the best Rust Preventer & stop falling for all of those Scam Cleaning Coating products

I have been using EEZOX for years also (I like the smell) to be honest while it is a good product, I don't think it is any type of miracle product. It does seem to reduce copper buildup and fouling when used as directed. I start with a spotless bore- Butches followed by a foam bore cleaner, apply EEZOX and only use EEZOX after that. I have never heard that it was a one time treatment, the manufacturer also recommends using it every time you clean the firearm. I have a hard time believing any product can be applied to a bore one time and protect it forever. There are plenty off barrels that have had nothing but solvent and oil used on them that are still as good as new but have been around since the turn of the century so I don't lose a lot of sleep about the subject.
