After a thorough cleaning I was inspecting the the barrel and noticed what appears to be an irregular black speck on the rifling about half way down the bore. I recleaned but the speck remains. History: I have 120 rounds through the rifle 40 55gr fed premium and 80 69gr fed match bla bla so I can't believe it's corrosion. Could it be copper? I haven't pasted the barrel yet. Something else? Thanks,

Is it the gas port?

Another vote for the gas port. Is it roughly under the front sight base?

Well damn I hope not! I suppose I was so shocked to see it I never considered the possibility. I don't think so though as I've never seen the gas port before after cleaning. I'll re check. If it is...well let's just say I'll write it up as a copper chunky anyway...

If it is it on the top of the bore about where the gas port is, well you might have a hole in your barrel. Jack
