    Just keep applying it as you feel fit. It takes aprox 30 days for tung oil to cure but there’s no need to wait if you don’t want to. I go a week then shoot it. Remember tung oil does not build up like TruOil and other finishes. You can keep applying the tung oil year after year.
    I give my rifle I use in matches a quick rub every year with tung oil. I don’t even bother removing it from the action

    Just took her to the range. It was empty, not too cold, nice and bright. I broguth the M1A and AR with the M1A promo scope (vortex 4-16)...and as soon as I get there I realize i left all my AR mags, atleast it works as a spotting scope! Nice scope but not sure i love it, in other that full magnification I can hardly see the crosshairs, and seems to rattle a lot with the few manually loaded shots I did. Ill see, I fgar prefered the 1-4 Leupold.

    As for the M1A I shot bench at 100 yards, this is such a fun rifle. I also got some PPU match ammo, so hopefully soon ill start playing with that at the 200 yard line. I did realize that center hold is not working well, so ill have to change to 6 oclock hold.Hopefully ill be able to do a few of the OCSA events this year with the M1A and the 1-4 AR.
