Well I don't what good it does but it surely doesn't harm anything. I've been using it off and on for years, same goes for JB paste. I use wipeout for removal of copper and once you use that you'll ask yourself why you have all the cleaning gear, I ask myself that quite a bit actually lol.
I run a patch soaked with shooters choice down the barrel, sometimes I follow up with a bronze brush, sometimes just a jag with a patch and remove the solvent. I then flip rifle upside down and fill the barrel with wipeout, let it sit for an hour and remove the wipeout. Flip it back to rightside up and time for more wipeout. An hour later I remove it with a dry patch, send some soaked ones thru with some remoil or other lubricants laying around and another loose fitting dry patch to remove most of the oil and it's done. *I rarely let the wipeout sit overnight. I have done it when I put 100 or more rounds down the tube but I rarely shoot more than 60 in a normal day with a single rifle.
There's never any downtime while the wipeout sits, I always take my Sigs or 870s to the range so while the wipeout is soaking, I am cleaning the other toys that need it
*I have no doubt some will see my cleaning regimen and laugh. I've tried so many different things over the years though and this one is the easiest. let the suggestions fly, I'm all ears, err eyes
