That ad mentions ammonia but doesn't say anything about corrosive ammo.

I would not trust the stuff because if you don't flush the corrosive salts out with WATER rust will form right underneath CLP.

It's WATER not ammonia that flushes out corrosive salts.

Just a patch wet with WATER will work in a bolt rifle and if water gets on the stock it won't wreck havoc like ammonia will.

Some of the C&R boards have stated that it isn't good for corrosive ammo.

It won't "flush" out the salts.

Hot water down the barrel is hard? What are you, paraplegic?

That MPro7 works great and MPro7 gel works even better.

I then use a few dry patches and finish up with a CLP patch for rust protection.

If you worry about the CLP dripping back into the action one more dry patch will leave enough CLP in the barrel.

I use windex first, then ED's Red after. What's so hard about that?

Before you leave the range, just run a couple of patches soaked in windex down the bore and wipe the bolt face. Then when you get home clean with Sweets. That seems to work okay.

I've heard in a couple of place good ol' Hoppe's #9 is great for corrosive ammo. After all, it was invented at the beginning of the smokless powder era. So it makes sense.

But you always hear of other things being used. So I've wondered how good it does. I mean, shoot, everybody has a bottle of Hoppe's #9 laying around.

I use the cheapest window cleaner with ammonia (windex type stuff) I can find. Soak a patch and run it down the barrel a few times.

i just stick the nozzle of the windex (w/amonia) in the chamber and squirt away til it drips from the muzzle. then i have a cup of warm h20 that i dip a couple patches in. after that a few passes with #9 and i havn't had any rust, bore still shines.

i shoot romanian 8mm in my k98RC.
