BoreSnake with Hoppes No.9 about five times then follow it with a dry patch. If patch comes out dirty I'll repeat the procedure till clean then finish with an oiled patch. Haven't had any problems or rust yet. I think that's really all that matters. You say tamayto, I say tomahto, you get the picture.

Brush about 20x with #9 to get the burned powder out, then push a mop soaked in Sweet's 7.62 and let sit for about 15 minutes. Push a dry patch through and repeat with the mop until all of the jacket material is out. Don't use the mop to scrub, use it to wet the bore. The chemicals do all of the work.

I use Hoppes No. 9. But a gunsmith friend of mine told me (and you guys may already be aware of it) NOT to use an aluminum cleaning rod. He recommends a plastic coated one because he says that if the aluminum comes in contact with the rifling in the chrome barrell, that the aluminum could build up... Sounds logical to me, so I bought a plastic coated one. I also use CLP sometimes too... haven't yet decided on what's my favorite. But the guy at the Hoppes table at the NRA show last year in Charlotte, NC swears that a very sexy lady had come by his counter and told him that she LOVED it when her husband cleans his guns with Hoppes. Said it drives her wild sexually. Hell, that sounds good to me... but I don't know where she lives, or what her husband might say if I dropped by. [sex] ARnSC

The main reason not to use a plastic or aluminum rod is that these rods are "soft" and will pick up grit in the rod and cause wear especially muzzle wear when used from the muzzle end. The best cleaning rod to use is a full length stainless steel rod.

YES ! This stuff is Awesome ! I've taken "thoroughly cleaned barrels" that have been done w/ hoppes and re-cleaned w/MPro7 and the patches initially come out black. I use it exclusively now for all of my bore cleaning tasks. Use the "Gel" (same product -- just more viscous) for cleaning your bores. It clings to the interior surfaces while it is working. I use the "Spray" for the outside of the barrel (handguns) and for all other cleaning tasks. The stuff has no smell, is non-toxic and non-irritation to the skin. It is a clear solution that can be re-used multiple times by simply filtering out any debris with a paper coffee filter. (per their instructions). I actually have a few friends that "dunk" their weapons into a bucket of MPro7 to clean 'em. It's a tad bit pricey though.. The most economical way to purchase is by the gallon. The liquid is around $60-70 per gallon) -- I get aprox. 30-40 handgun cleanings per gallon. Here's the place to go: [url]www.mpro7.com[/url]
