Why is my synthetic stock sticky?
When the foam in thoses cases remains in contact with firearm stocks, synthetic stocks in particular, quite often a chemical reaction causes the surface of the stock to break down and become very gooey and sticky.
Why is my Browning Maxus sticky?
Browning used something called “dura touch” on these stocks and after a few years the chemicals begin to breakdown and the stock becomes sticky. Browning will replace it but it’s a pain to ship it back to them and then wait approx 9 months to get your rifle back.
What gun shoots a 223 WSSM?
The new . 224″ short magnum cartridge was first chambered in Winchester’s Model 70 bolt action rifle. The 223 WSSM is a centerfire rifle cartridge based ultimately on the 404 Jeffery class case, shortening and necking down a 300 WSM to twenty-two caliber and sharpening the shoulder angle to 28 degrees.
How fast is 223 WSSM?

What is the fastest 223 round?
Using a very fat bodied case necked down to shoot a small diameter, . 22 caliber bullet, the . 223 Winchester Super Short Magnum (WSSM) has a very large propellant capacity. When combined with very lightweight bullets, it’s possible to achieve extremely high muzzle velocities well in excess of 4,000 feet per second.
What’s the fastest bullet in the world?
The . 220 Swift remains the fastest commercial cartridge in the world, with a published velocity of 1,422 m/s (4,665 ft/s) using a 1.9 grams (29 gr) bullet and 2.7 grams (42 gr) of 3031 powder.
What is the slowest bullet?
On a more serious note, the . 22 caliber rimfire “Colibrí” rounds made by Aguila Ammunition of Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico really do fire the slowest bullets of any commercially manufactured ammunition. Aguila’s advertised maximum muzzle velocity for the ammunition is a mere 420 feet per second (128 meters per second).
Is the.223 WSSM really that bad?
The 223 WSSM can be loaded to exceed most other .223’s. but if maintained properly and fed good well though out ammo barrel erosion should not be an issue. In fact an improper load in a .308 can wash out a barrel faster. The .223 WSSM is a great and fun cartridge and is properly loaded, fired and cleaned it should last a long time.
Why is the WSSM chambered in a 22 ” barrel?
Also, because the burn is so efficient, a shorter, stiffer 22″ barrel can be used and still achieve high velocities. With most WSSM-chambered rifles, the action was also super short which resulted in a very tight, stable receiver, which some believe increases accuracy.
What is the muzzle velocity of a WSSM?
The impressive speeds of the WSSM are achieved by putting a lightweight bullet on top of a short, fat, high-volume case. This basic concept resulted in muzzle velocities of approximately 4,000 fps with the 223 WSSM with some loadings and close to that with some 243 WSSM loads.
Why was the WSSM super short rifle made?
The super short receiver. To ensure feeding reliability, the WSSM cartridges, with their short 2.36″ overall length, necessitate a shorter action. Because of this, a super-short action size was designed for the Browning’s A-Bolt II rifle. The super-short action is not only shorter; it’s also stiffer, quicker to cycle and lighter.
