Beautiful gun and she shoots good too!Woke up to cooler weather and slight overcast, 5MPH wind. Decided to see how many un-swabbed shots I could get out of my recently acquired W. Bratten, Lancaster Rifle. Target shots shown are from the bench. Used .490LRB, .015” patch with TOTW Mink Oil, 70gr GOEX 3F. Target shows shot #1(lowest) from clean bore. The remaining 4 shots, are every 5th shot for a total of 21 shots when I called it quits for the session. To avoid boredom, the shots between the target shots were taken off hand at 50 yard steel targets.The 9 o’clock, 5 mph wind was pushing shots right. Loading for the last couple of shots began to show slight resistance but the last shot was still maintaining accuracy under two inches. Overall, I was quite pleased with the results. Love this rifle!

No. Buy pure Mink oil from trackofthewolf.com. Boot Mink oil is a mixture of chemicals called ‘Mink oil’ and may not even have any Mink oil in it.Is the Mink Oil that you use on your patches the same stuff you can treat boot leather with?

I feel you brother. That exactly happened to me five months ago. I’m sitting in the shop whittling on a gun, Prostate and cancer free, as of the 1st of June. Here’s praying your CT comes back clear.I'll post in advance...
headed for an MRI/CT scan tomorrow for something my urologist found at my last follow up.
I'm not excited.
Thanks Griz, I like a peninsula bench like this because it’s just c-clamped onto my main bench and can be removed or moved around as I need. Super handy. And yes I’m all around it when Im inletting.I do like the 360 degree access the 90 degree bench extension gives you. Nice setup.
