    Unfortunately that is what it's doing and only the person making the post can eliminate it, this came up on another forum (not a gun forum) a while back and most of those folks too were quite annoyed by it, it even came up here a couple of years...

    The thing is that's the CORRECT bore for that caliber, the 38-55, rather than being an oversized bore. Seems most of the modern barrel manufacturers want to use the incorrect .375 bore, I suppose because that's what they are already set up for but...

    Yep that's it and the company is hijacking the poster's phone to post spam on the forum, it's just an annoying way to get free advertising.

    After talking with a friend who has one I was told that they have a true 38 bore like the original 38-55's rather than the common .375 bore. I know when they first hit the market they developed a reputation for poor accuracy, as his did, until folks...

    Chalk or soapstone, I personally prefer soapstone, should always be used as it helps prevent clogging of the teeth and helps clear the chips for the next pass. A lot of applied pressure and clogged teeth will not only gouge the work piece but it...

    Yep, I have heard of vinegar being used in place of acid but then vinegar is quite acidic (Acetic acid) and I suspect the microwave heating sped up the process. I have never used vinegar but unless I am mistaken I think when used on files it needs...

    A well known trick to refresh a mildly dull file is to soak it in acid but I have found the common method of using dilute Sulfuric acid to be entirely too harsh and while it does work it erodes the teeth rapidly. I have also seen Hydrochloric (AKA...

    Soapstone is better than chalk IMO but file cards should be outlawed, I would never subject my files to one of those stikin things!!! First off they don't work very well, they do a fair job of removing the bigger clogs from the teeth that cause...

    I think it was you who put me onto Boggs a while back in another thread and they are everything folks claim about them, dull files return sharp enough to cut yourself on and cost very little compared to buying new ones.
