Barrel Clean on Ultimate Sporter

Barrel Clean on Ultimate Sporter

Postby gdavison » Thu Jan 05, 2017 9:54 pm

Went to clean the barrel on my Ultimate Sporter and as with my S510 superlight I first took the moderator off to get the pull thru down through the moderator, but off course on the superlight its a simple unscrew from the shroud and with the Ultimate Sporter its a undo grub screw and then realise the moderator is part of the "support" to the barrel .. As such after the clean and refit of the moderator I needed to re-zero again as it was a little out

Got me wondering if I could feed the pull thru without removing the moderator, tried the straw trick as used on S510's however could not find one small enough to go down the .177 Moderator on the ultimate sporter ..

Simple Q .. how do other folk clean the barrel on their Ultimate Sporter

Am reading lots of mixed reviews on VFG quick cleaning pellets vs say a Napier Pull Thru .. any real experiences from here versus the two methods ?

VFGs are ok, I sometimes use them two together, I have seen the Napier pull thru snap in the barrel, bugger to get the patches out, And you can put a bit of lube on a VFG aswell. Remington also do them, but not as good as VFG . Rog
