MWM, cant answer your que, but you may have something there. first shot fliers ??
will keep your theory in mind next time i clean with a wet patch. maybe i'll stop cleaning, lol.
i give my guns a good cleaning before eech time i go out to the range... when i go to the range with both big or little bore i put the first round in the dirt...i didnt do this before but once i did i noticed that my shots were more consistant first shot to last.

Well I myself, do the whole anal solvent patch/brass brush process. Even if only one shots fired, but my point of impact never changes. Well sort of. See with Outers Bore oil that I was using cause it came in a cleaning kit would take 2-3 shots to clean that oil out of the bore after those 2-3 cleaning shots it was perfect zero once again. Then when I ran out I started using Mobil 1, 10w-30, takes ten shots to return to zero, so now before I go to the range, or shoot something I run a patch with rubbing alcohol throught the bore, then a dry patch, that way it's back to a perfect zero. I believe the oil itself can change the accuracy, but once it burns off or blows out there's not a problem.

What's the advantage of dry cleaning anyway?

what i mean is my first few shots...if i clean the gun it takes a few rounds before it has the same point of impact as it did before solvent cleaning. will my point of impact change from running dry patches instead of wet?

That is a new one, why did you use 10w-30 to lube your rifle?
It's what was there at the time lol. Leftover from a mower, normally it's 5w-30 cause that's what I put in my cars. Not for any perticular reason. It protects well, and holds up over time. Only down side is having to run a patch down the bore to have 1st shot accuracy.
