I just made up an order from Brownells and got a can to try it out. Supposedly the best there is. Any of you guys use it? Or what is your preference in bore cleaners?
yes they make one for all calibers i believe. There is a spot on the boresnake that has a brush built into it....about an inch after that I apply a few drops of CLP going all the way around it...just make sure u shake it before you use it....I bought one for my shotgun and with two quick passes it was squeeky clean..didnt even have to take the barell off u just open the action and drop the end down...like a long shoelace with a weight on the end...same for pistols. I bought them for all my other weapons after I saw how great and easy they workedDo they make boresnakes for .17cal?
Actions always get broken out of the stock, then clamped securely in a vice upside-down securely for barrel cleaning. I never clean a gun (particularly a rifle) with the stock attached. Always clean the milsurps this way. They need lube in critical areas that isn't exposed unless the stock is removed. Trigger groups get pulled and broken down, cleaned and lightly lubed after every outing. Bolt-actions get their bolts dismantled every few hundred rounds just to make sure everything looks right inside. I review all the internals, and give everything a once-over if not for just an eyeball cursory overview to make sure nothing is amiss.Do not let Sweet's touch a wood stock!
