    So...cleaning after last weekend's skirmish and seeing the same type of results on the patches after cleaning 2 smoothbores. They seem clean in the sink, but the dry patches come out filthy. I do more Ballistol patches then the Chore Boy, and then more Ballistol patches that are again dirty.

    Now this is anecdotal, and probably meaningless, but I felt like I was getting my good-old accuracy with my Enfield on Saturday during individuals. Good enough for 1st place 50 yard, 100 yard, and Musket Agg.

    Sunday I couldn't hit squat again. But, I was pretty tired.

    I'm thinking it takes much more aggressive cleaning than I have been doing over the years.
