Anyone want to share what they wish they knew when they first got their 452? Care, use, storage, etc. Picking one up soon and want to do well by it.

I have the same 452 I bought used several years ago with about 350 rounds through it.

I shoot mainly CCI standard velocity and average groups from a bench at 50 yards are about .593". I feel the rifle can do better. I also shoot Norma Tac 22 and it likes that too.

When cleaning I use a full length cleaning rod with a bore guide.

I store mine in the basement in a case. No big deal.

Good luck, you make a great choice.

Congrats on getting a very nice rifle. It?s a great time to have a new rifle, ammo is plentiful and cheap, get yourself several different brands, head to range, and see what she likes 😀

Looks like I spoke too soon. The seller kept putting things off and then changed his mind. Guess I'm off to hunt for another one.
