And you chose a handle with Sniper in it? I sure hope that the baddest *person* on here goes by Cabbagepatch or Carebear.No I thought about that but I wasn't sure how to do it? I've cleaned a lot of guns but never taken the bolt out and cleaned it. How do you do take it out and apart?
Glad to hear you got that ejection problem figured out.Ok I took it apart, cleaned it and worked with it for awhile and its working fine now. Thank you for the help!

There really is a wealth of information on these pages, and in the brains of the guys who contributed to them.
Are you using factory ammo or handloads? Is this a deer rifle or varmint?
Thank you so am I. Ok thanks for the advice, I'll make sure to clean it with a brush. Ok, I wasn't sure but I figured Id ask since I'm new and and there was like a setting or something so thank you. Yeah I can see that from my first post, and reading other peoples posts. Me too!Good deal, glad you got it working without having any major repairs or costing money. You said it was your grandfathers gun and that's great, something passed down to you that someday you could pass down to one of your own. I'm not sure how in depth you went with the original cleaning but, if it's old and has not had a really good barrel cleaning using solvents to help get rid of the copper fouling, lead, and powder residue's and such it would probably be a good idea to do one with not only patches but a brush also. I've only been here since late last year and don't think you can know about responses unless you just look. There might be a way but I'm not aware of one. There are plenty of guys on this site with a wealth of really good advice and knowledge and not just someone's personal opinions on things although from time to time we all do that and that's ok. Congratulations on your newly received prize and again welcome to the forum. I love my 243, may be my favorite !!
