Default How often do you use a Borescope?


So I now have this NTG500 borescope. I'm starting the process of deep cleaning and filming the barrels of all of my rifles. How often do you go in and film follow-ups? When your groups open up, every 500rnds, or what? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9Z4C9aTT7k

Depends on the rifle.

My competition guns, Every time they are cleaned which is after every match.
everything else, When it suits me, I'm not concerned with scoping the bore of most my rifles. Only the match grade ones.

Never. Like ever. Never ever. I shoot 'em until the barrel's done, then I screw another one on. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

Well that's one way to do it. Put me in line for your throw-aways.

Drat! Those kind of toys excite me. One is on the list. The sad story is that the toys just pile up. I strive for organization.

I use them seldom, but it's a great tool to have on occasion.

Had a friend with a minor bore obstruction... turned out to be a substantial lead deposit on one side of the barrel of a .22 pistol. Once I knew for certain what it was, I was able to deal with it the right way. Have never seen one like that, pretty strange. It was a little scary to think of the .22's having to skirt around that obstacle on their way to the muzzle and freedom.

Got it knocked loose with an allen wrench down the barrel just big enough to pass by the deposit on a flat side. Turning gently but authoritatively dislodged it without too much fuss. Then at least we could get the cleaning jag past it for a proper job of it.

On my competition guns:

When a new barrel is installed
After break-in cleaning
Every 200 rounds or so looking for carbon ring, etc.
If I have accuracy issues

I've been reading more often of late, competition shooters posting about using these to check for carbon ring buildup in their chamber.

By the way this Sunday is the last day to enter my giveaway contest. I'm giving away one of these borescopes. https://moondogindustries.com/borescopecontest/

You don't want my used barrels. I run my loads HOT for the most part (6GT pushing 105's at 3004) and run them 2500 rounds before I pull them. Pretty sure they're toast when I'm done with them.

FYI: Congratulations to Steve D. of Martinez, CA for winning the borescope contest. I hope to post a follo-up video of his experiences with it.
