I just learned about Cerrosafe on another thread here and looked it up on the web. I've gotta say, I'm fascinated with this stuff! A question:

Does making chamber castings do any harm to the rifle? In other words, is it okay to make a casting just for grins, or should you need a good reason?

Nobody but a gunsmith will even know what this is. Gunsmiths are all super busy getting guns done weeks or months after they were promised.

It won't hurt your gun at all in any way. Cast away till your arms hurt, cast ALL your chambers. The stuff is NEAT!!!!

In and of itself Cerrosafe will not harm your guns. However, if you use a poor technique, and do not get all of the residue out of the chamber or bore prior to firing you may experience problems.

Close the bore off with a patch just ahead of the chamber and you should get a good cast. If the patch doesn't come out with the cast, though, make sure you remove it before firing.

Cerrosafe is better than sulfur casting because it does not shrink like sulfur does (and doesn't stink as bad, either).

'I want to do it' is reason enough. Having a chamber casting work perfectly on the try will put a huge grin on your face. Brownell's has a how-to on their site. www.brownells.com/aspx/NS/General/DisplayPDF.aspx?f=bt002015.pdf
