That was awesome!!
It is salts I know. I have seen friends wait about 4 hours to clean after corrosive ammo and it take them about two hours to get the rust out
that had built up in the non-chrome lines barrel. But hey to each their own right.
Dude... I've been polite, but because I dislike passive-aggression so much, now I'll be blunt.
1. I told you that I only waited 20 minutes to clean my rifle - not that I had to explain myself to you in any way, but I did out of politeness.
2. I've shot this ammo a lot, including through PKMs in Iraq while a member of a PSD team - I'm very familiar with this stuff, so go badger someone else about how corrosive it is - k?
I shoot my mosin all the time with corrosive ammo and then on the way home, I pour apple juice and battery acid down the barrel.
When I get home , I plug both ends of the bore with a leather plug and leave it set a few months and then I run a patch through it and its like a mirror finish in there.
those things are amazing.
I need a Mosin to shoot and not immediately speed home to clean. Anyone selling?
Could pee in the barrel....lol
sent from the bathroom
if they rust up in 2 hours how the heck did any of them make it through the siege of Stalingrad, or the whole war for that matter?
Well, I'm buggered if I'm going to be hitting the range with a bottle of Windex.
I do not clean right away either. I've even cleaned the next day and had no noticeable damage.
Perhaps some ammo is more corrosive then others?? Could that be?
I doubt it. Bear in mind that all small-arms ammo prior to the 1950s would be considered corrosive these days - the corrosive element being the mercuric salts in the priming compound, which attracted moisture and, if left untreated, would eventually rust. So all those guys in WW1 and WW2... didn't see them panicking; they just cleaned their weapons when they had some downtime.
Regular water can dissolve and remove these salts, after which regular cleaning/oiling is done.
