After you are finished running it through the bore, do you have to clean the brush?  If so, what do you use/do to clean it?

What i do is keep 2 bottles of bore cleaner, 1 new and one thats about 1/2 full (used). After cleaning bore rinse/clean brush in old bottle. Works good keeps your new bottle of cleaner from getting dirty, then rotate with new as needed.

Blast the brush with GunScrubber or brake cleaner of choice.

I have bought the plastic squeeze bottles of Hoppes gun oil (4 oz. orange w/flip-up tip) and:
1) just dump the gun oil in my used motor oil containers
2) flush the orange bottle with GunScrubber and dry it out
3) fill it with my bore solvent of choice
4) cap it, flip the tip and squeeze out the amount needed
5) flip the tip down when not in use
5) spray all brushes and jags with GunScrubber or brake cleaner

no muss no fuss
