It amazes me that the long held practice of using a fouled bore is coming into question. I am no longer actively a L.E. sniper. I lost patience and like the entry team much better. Having said that, I have never met a sniper who would even dream of taking a hostage rescue shot with a clean bore. Yeah, we leave $6k sniper rifles in our trunk with the bore fouled. I have only had one rifle rust on me and it was a Ruger #1 416 Rigby. I shot it and cleaned it 4 days later and the barrel was pitted like crazy. It literally turned into a rust bucket in the bore in 4 days. I am 100% convinced that despite what Federal says, the ammo had to be corrosive.
