INJURY TO RIFLE BARREL—Which injures a .2-2 rifle barrel more, black or smokeless powder?
Neither powder injures a rifle barrel. Neglect to clean, a rifle results in corrosion, or rusting. My own practice is to wipe my .22 caliber barrels with a greased rag every ten or twenty shots. Black powder fouls a barrel more than smokeless, but smokeless powder residue doesn’t help the rifle polish any if allowed to harden.
