Gun Cleaning Kit & Supplies
Use only copper-removing bore solvents in the bore. The various “powder” solvents do little or nothing on copper deposits in the bore, and the copper solvents, combined with a good brushing, wash away powder deposits.
Use brass or plastic brushes on the bore of the rifle, not stainless. Buy the correct-sized cleaning patches, 100% cotton. Cotton patches hold solvents better than synthetics.
Using the wrong size “because it’s cheap” or cutting down too-big patches is a recipe for hassle or disaster. If too small they won’t clean well, and you may lose one in the bore. Too big, and you might wedge one (still secured to the cleaning rod) in the bore, or worse yet it might come off, which can be an expensive error to correct.
Ned once had to rebuild a rifle for a shooter. The fellow had been diligently doing the correct barrel break-in procedure on his expensive new barrel. Unbeknownst to him, the sectioned cleaning rod unscrewed and left the cleaning rod tip and patch in the bore. The next shot? Bulged barrel, busted bolt, heartache and expense.
