Wont the round go faster with oil in the barrel??
I put a light coat of Rem oil teflon with a patch.
I don't know if you have tried it but the best out there is Militec-1 oil and grease I switch from others to just that and for cleaning M-Pro 7 is all I use.Well, I agree that a slick treatment of CLP left in the bore could/might/will make the first round hit the target off-center. But for a CCW pistol that may be in my pocket everyday for weeks/months without cleaning or firing, I like the bore to have something to protect it from what we commonly call rust. (Unless it's a SS barrel) So the best product I've found for that is CLP. I could care less if the first round doesn't hit dead center with my CCW.
But for target competition I'm a believer in "conditioning" the bore with a minimum fo 100 rounds or more before accepting the zero on my scope or the group I might be getting, especially with .22LR.
Again, anything in the bore will/should be burned away after 100 rounds and the bore should settle down for tight groups. I try to condition the bore the day before a match and then don't clean it before the match.
Somebody tell me if I'm wrong about this.
