What is a good fitting bore guide yall use? and what is a good cleaning rod?

Ive been looking at this guide
http://www.bosesguns.com/product_p/dewm16b.htm

But I cant decide one the right cleaning rod. I know dewey makes one but they make coated and carbon fiber. Not sure of the benefit or cons of either.

Also, Im looking to get one rod that will be good for my AR, 30-30, and Rem 700 .270. SO what length of rod do yall think would be good for all three weapons?

Obvious the Rem 700 is the longest barrel at 24 inches.

As for the AR bore guide I've used the JP Enterprises guide for a while and have yet to find anything better.

For general comparative shopping check Sinclair.

They were bought out by Brownells.

Sinclair.

I use the 'Sinclair AR-15 Rod Guide and Link Kit' on that page, myself.

Are you able to get a bore brush through the JP Enterprises rod guide?

Perhaps a Lucas bore guide. I haven't got mine yet but I have one on order. Supposed to be the best.

Me too. Just got it and was very pleased with the quality. Can use it on the .30-30 as well.

I don't know what the cons are to the carbon rod, if any. But I have a dewey with the plastic coating –– you have to watch it or it can get gouged. I cleaned my mosin-nagant and didn't pull the trigger to bring the hammer down. The hammer gouged the plastic coating, so it was pretty much toast.

I never used a bore guide before, until Tipton just sent me their Rapid Deluxe Bore Guide Kit. I likeit, it's nice. Check it out at their website.
