A buddy of mine was telling me about using Kroil Oil as a cleaning agent. Anyone use this? Alone or with some other cleaner,..Interested as I have an unlimited supply of Kroil.....Thanks,Udog

I used it awhile along with the J&B bore compound on a bench gun.Worked pretty well.If Kroil is used alone it takes a overnight soaking to get all the fouling loose...but it will work.
My favorite CLP,FP-10 cleans about the same way...uses a penetrant base oil as a solvent.Just needs some soak time.

Kroil is a "creeping" oil, leave it soak and clean afterwords, also be careful with it and make sure your ammo does not come in contact with Kroil, it will ruin the primers

I use Kroil when my barrel is really fouled

I find that Kroil works really well on lead and powder fouling, but does nothing for copper fouling. As such, its great in my rimfire guns, and I use it in my bolt actions, and I use a 50/50mix with FP-10 in a small bottle for soaking my AR bolt or pistol barrels in. It smells ok too.

It also works pretty good on rusted/stuck nuts and bolts. Better than WD-40.

Kroil is gooood stuff. Works with JB bore paste on moly removal as well.
