Hello, everyone. I just discovered this site a few days ago. This is my first post. I've owned a beautiful 7mm-08 Hunter 75 for about 10-12 years. Bought her second hand. Killed a number of deer. Accuracy has always been erratic. Sometimes good, sometimes OK. (OK being defined as 1.5" groups with Remmington CoreLokt.) Since day one, the bore has really attracted a lot of copper. I didn't know to break in the barrel, so when I realized how bad the copper fouling was, I read up on barrel issues. I took the bore down to bare metal (with solvent and JB paste) and started a break-in process. Even after that was completed, the gun picks up a huge amount of copper fouling (at least in comparison to my other center fire rifles). Is this typical of Sakos? Thanks.
