Re: Remington 760 questions
For those of you that love wood stocks hate synthetic, like me. Here's something that will help.
You can't prevent wood from taking on moisture completely but here's a trick that will help. Remove the stock from the action, remove the butt plate. Every where you can see bare wood apply a coat or two of birchwood casey tru oil. Just rub it in with your fingers, letting it dry between coats. Once the tru oil has dried take a good furniture paste wax and again apply a couple of coats to the complete stock, and every nook and cranny you can get at, then buff with a cloth.Treat it like fine furniture,which it is. The water will bead up and run off just like a newly waxed auto. Repeat the wax at the end of each season when you clean the gun.
The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.
