sweet's 7.62 solvent is what i use when i pick up a used rifle not knowing when it was last cleaned. otherwise i use shooters choice solvent on a regular basis.

Butch's Bore Shine is higly rated.

I just use MPRO-7. I don't try to get all the copper out, just enough so that I don't have to start shooting the next smaller caliber....

No. 9 unless your're in a hurry.

Sweets 7.62 is the cats ass! If you can stand the odor.

shooters choice works really well for me, a bit smelly though

I use one of the weaker ones like Hoppes (the copper solvent, not the regular cleaner) every couple cleanings, and the strong stuff, Sweet's ocasionally to get out whatever the other stuff didn't.

Ed's Red works as good as anything I've tried, and it's so cheap it's all I'll ever use.

not to hijack this thread, but do copper solvents/cleaners damage chrome lined barrels?

Butch's Bore Shine, Hands Down. Also Sweets, but it stinks.

Nope.

Sweets with a Nylon brush is the best for removing metalic fouling.

+1, exactly my routine. I also use 7.62 to get the really nasty crap out that I didn't clean the day of shooting (blasphemy I know).

I gave up on No. 9 a couple years ago, too slow.

I like Barnes CR-10.
