Default possibly the easiest and best way to clean....

well, as we are getting closer here in WV to that favorite time of the season for us all, and no im not talking about the superbowl (though it ranks up there!) Hunting season is right around the corner, and my Bore-Snakes have come out of the cleaning box, and down the throat of my select 2 firearms for the season. The ol' .270 was still shinny! but a little oil and the .277 CAL boresnake made her shine. and the .30 cal for the .30-30. The Bore snake in my mind is the most simple way to make sure you get ALL residue and gunk out of the barrel! does anybody else use one? believe me, ive broken my fair share of cleaning rods. but this was the best investment i have ever made.....except for my RemOil....

you're going to run solvent down to clean out any oil residue before shooting, right? i never oil a bore only solvent and dry patches. i will once in a while use the expanding foam bore scrubber then solvent and dry if its had a number of rounds put down it but mostly just solvent and dry. i agree bore snakes are pretty nice. especially for the 10/22 and the ar plateform.

I usually finish with just a tad bit of rem oil, with teflon, on a rag as my last pass. Is this a bad practice?? I haven't noticed any issues doing this that I'm aware of. Need info!

I feel that the bore snakes are probably the easiest way to clean a bore. I have one in .22 cal (for .22's) and one in .30 cal. (my my .303, 7.62x54r, 30-06, and 30-30!) You don't risk screwing up the rifling or the crown with a cheap cleaning rod. With a more expensive one that isn't as much of a problem, but still always clean from chamber to muzzle... You should try some BreakFree CLP instead of RemOil....It's A LOT better in my opinion.

Its great to coat the bore with oil..just run a dry patch or something before shooting.

just was always taught to never shoot a rifle with oil in the bore. i did store one that way once and after "cleaning" with a dry patch i couldn't get any kind of group. took it home cleaned it with solvent then dry, when back and was back to good. so i don't oil the bore. i do however clean my rifles a couple times a year even if they haven't been shot and clean after a shooting session.

You mean to tell me I've been wasting it in my truck? I know I've never had any rust issue with rem oil. On the outside I use a wood floor wax (yup) on the barrel/metal surfaces and wood stocks. No rust issues and wood looks like new.

wax probably doesn't stink like the oils. may count down on scent?
