Best copper solvent?

What's the best copper solvent and do you use a different solvent for powder fouling. Thanks for the info!

    I use Warthog for both.

    Except when I'm not in a hurry. Then I use Wipeout.

    1+ on Warthog for both. Wipeout is good, but messy (for me), and some people like to use a separate carbon remover.

    Bore Tech Eliminator for copper; Shooters Choice Blackpowder gel for carbon.

    The gunslick foam, to my surprise, worked better, substantially, over wipeout.

    I thought my barrel was totally void of copper until I ran some Bore Tech Eliminator thru it yesterday. Definitely be using it from now on
