Words of wisdom spoken well. I too used some super lube, ordered a large tube while on sale at cabelas with free shipping! That was the first thing I did when I took the impact out of the box, put some of that anit-seize super lube on and twisted it back into place...once I start shooting it I will also store it with breech plug out too. Gonna clean barrel insides tonight as a little bit of just storage build up looks present, nothing a little cleaning then some bore butter won't solve.
Got an assortment of bullets I'm going to try. The top two choices I got are the T/C super glides in 245gr, and then the low drag hornady sabots in the same grain. Will let you guys know how it goes.
More than likely going to go affordable but very effective with the scope and get a simmons Pro Diamond scope...but that my friends will be with tax return money so few weeks away from that.
