More Extreme Long Range Shooting Gear recommendations – coming soon!
We have been using this scope for a while now and love it!
Best scope for a 6.5 Creedmore? Actually, it is spelled “Creedmoor” but I get what you are asking. This Vortex Razor is pretty great, read an honest review HERE.
One of the best spotting scopes for long range shooting is honestly reviewed HERE.
TIPS: Buy 2 so that you don’t have to change the jag/brush constantly. Always go long length, if not for your current rifle; for your next one!
- A toolbox or fishing tackle box to hold your gear. I suggest one that has room to have aerosol cans stand upright.
- Rubber gloves, keeping in mind that your hands might be sensitive to certain plastics.
- Eye protection. Really. The probability of chemicals splashing around is pretty high.
- Brushes are great. Because of my psychological problem of hoarding, I have far too many toothbrushes, steel brushes and scrub brushes. If you ever see a unique brush, I bet you will someday be able to use it on one of your guns so you should definitely buy it. If you don’t use it, let me know and I will take it.
- Bore brushes for each caliber. Start with 5. Nylon or bronze work well.
- Shop towels of the blue mechanic type.
- Cotton rags
- Cleaning patches appropriate for each caliber
- Cleaning rods. Buy 2 or 3, and I suggest long and skinny because you will be able to use them on not only your current rifles, but also on your next ones. Do NOT use the sectional cheapo rods.
- Jags appropriate for the caliber, I prefer the push-through or “pierce-style” jags over loop jags.
- Bore guides for each rifle / chambering
- Cheapo Brake Cleaner
- CLP (Clean – Lubricate – Protect) Remington’s Rem Oil is great
- Cleaning solvents KG-1 carbon remover, KG-12 Copper remover, Butches Bore Shine
- Gun oil, it really does not matter what brand.
- Gun grease, I like Shooter’s Choice
- Gunsmith Screwdriver kit
- Toothpicks, both wood and plastic and my dental hygienist even gave me one of her old worn out professional picks.
*Disclaimer. Are we slinging junk because we get kickbacks? We ONLY recommend gear that we use and love. We provide links to reputable places to buy the gear, and as affiliates, some of the companies we recommend give us a few cents as a thanks for telling our clients about them. If you want the big companies to keep 100% of what you pay rather than sharing a few cents with us, geesh, why are you being like that? Let us know and we can show you how to buy at the same cost without us getting a share.
