How do you clean your bore?

push a brush from the chamber to muzzle until it exits the bore. Then I pull it back through. It won't hurt anything. Just don't change directions in the bore.

Use a Parker-Hale type wrap around style jag and reduce the need for the brush.

OTIS is great for cleanings away from your work bench. At home it can not compair to a rod and a good set of jags and brushes.

I push it down then pull it back.

when using a loop patch holder or a brush I do not exit the bore.

How do you not exit the bore when using the brush? You are not supposed to change directions with a brush while it is in the bore....which is hard to do anyway with a good brush. I go all the way out and then pull back through. Never had a problem.

thr brush has to be worn a tad. the brush will leave about 3/4 of the way out then back it goes.

Jarheadtop in one of his books it is explained why and how to do it. It can be Just match shooters witch brew or it may work. I only run the process on my M1A (not as cheap to rebarrel as an ar).

Ar get cleaned the noraml way of back and forth.

worn bore brushes I use to wrap patches around them. Works verry well at catching a lot of crud.

Nothing changes direction when I'm cleaning or shooting. Chamber brush to thoroughly clean the chambers and lugs then brush to clean the barrel. I use Otis system partially. Draw a solvent soaked patch thru the barrel (chamber to end) then drag a brush thru three to seven times (also a one direction pull) (number of times depends on how much I've fired). Finally mopp the chamber then pull patches thru until they come out clean.

OTIS, best kit i have ever used :)

I have an otis kit and I am hesitant to buy a bore guide that goes into my receiver... I have a chrome lined barrel with muzzle brake... Do I really have to worry a bout damaging my crown? I dont have a competition crowned muzzle anyhow... Would the otis kit be more than safe for cleaning?

Iv'e recently purchased an Otis Tactical cleaning kit. It's the best system I've yet used. It's very comprehensive (although it does not contian the chamber brush) and addresses just about every need. Easy and fast with virtually no chance of damaginf you crown. In fact, I like it so much that I just purchased the M16 Military cleaning system, which will clean everything from a .22 to a .50 caliber including all shotguns. This kit also includes the M16 scaper set for detailed cleaning. I should add that Otis is an exceptional company with which to deal.

normally I pull the cable if i'm doing a quick cleaning from breech to muzzle; otherwise if a rod is used for a more thorough cleaning i push the rod breech to muzzle.
