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....
