I've seen a number of reviews of bore cleaner over the past few months. I haven't kept count, but there's at least 3 combinations I've seen, where the first bore cleaner removes a lot, but the second one always removed more. It makes me wonder if the process was reversed, would the last one still remove more copper. Has anyone tried this to see what would happen?
I'd try it, but I'm a tightwad. Some of you probably already have 6-8 of these cleaners & they'd be able to conduct this experiment.
I know I don't want to use Sweets or any other cleaner with ammonia for one simple reason. With a severe A.D.D. problem, I get distracted very easily, & do not want to ruin a bore on a new rifle because I let it sit for several hours or more with a ammoniated cleaner in the bore.
Presently, I'm using Wipe-Out along with the Accelerator, after I've run a brush through the bore with Hoppe's in & out twice and enough patches alternating between wet & dry until the patches come out nearly spotless . I always allow it to sit at least 12 hours plus, with the barrel slightly tilted down. I always get a very deep blue which runs out of the bore after I remove a gas check as a plug. It seems to do an excellent job, but I'm always open to someone else's experiences. I'm never in a hurry though. I can always load ammo for my next session
I also recently bought "Losso Nylex" bore brushes which should help a little more to eliminate wear.
