    My wife would freak out if my work bench looked like that.

    Looks to me you like to tinker.
    I wish I had a garage so I could have a work bench just like yours. :Cooltu:

    Thunderbolts....aren't those the ones that have caused a lot of leading in barrels ? Maybe Remington has solved the problem, but keep an eye on the barrel and just in case , have a good rod , brushes and lead removing solvent/cleaner on hand.
    If they do cause problems you might want to invest in a thing called a Lewis Lead remover...that's the best thing going for lead removal in a 22 barrel.

    I know finding ammo is tough, and no sense not shooting all that ammo you have, the Lewis tool will help. I know !

    Yep, Thunderbolts are known for heavy leading.

    Pretty sure Remington has resolved the lead issue

    One is Federal AutoMatch and the other is the Thunderbolt

    I'D freak out if mine looked like that. I gotta have some order and tidiness. Makes using the space much easier, enjoyable and well...rewarding at least to me.

    A guy gave me a box of 50 TB's last year. I didn't know leading was a problem with them. Probably cause I shot a bunch of other stuff behind them.
    They fired and cycled the action but accuracy was poor. I leave em on the shelf when I see em. Come to think of it, I leave all Rem ammo on the shelf.
