    Who "deep cleans" or "polishes" their turkey gun bore?

    Been doing a little research on this particular topic. Seems either procedure will produce better patterns but also seems to be personal preference. Who done which method and why? I'm probably going to try the deep clean first and then polish if so desired.

    I always just ran a bore snake down the barrel, on occasion I might run some solvent through it, but not often.

    There are a bunch of guys on another forum that swear by these methods. Personally, I've never given it much thought but it seems to be a popular method

    I deep clean all my firearms once a year. Polishing nah. To polish you need to use something like 0000 steel wool and a drill. Polishing will always remove metal which is a no no in a barrel.
    When all else fails..... call in an Airstrike

    Can't say I've heard of it. My current set up kills birds to 50 yards. I might be interested in it if I hunted fields as opposed to hardwoods. There every extra yard in range you can get helps.
    Surpass the master and you have paid his wager.

    A shot hurried is a shot wasted.

    Deep cleaning seems perfectly safe. Polishing, however, seems to be more aggressive and I think some guys do it in an effort to back bore the barrel slightly without taking it to a gunsmith.
