I thought i would start a thread were members could share how THEY clean their rifles, and what works for THEM.
I'll start, i clean with Bore Tech Eliminator and Iosso bore paste.
Step 1: I start by pushing patches soaked in BTE until the patches come out with almost no black color to them (usually 4), then i let the BTE soak for 20 minutes.
Step 2: I push 1 dry patch and 2 wet patches down the bore and let sit for 20 minutes.
Step 3: Repeat step 2, 4-5 Times or until patches come out clean.
Step 4: If the patches are still coming out green/blue after repeating step 2, 4-5 times i take a patch with some Iosso bore paste and scrub the whole bore for about 30 seconds, then push another patch with iosso straight down the barrel without scrubbing. Then alternate between dry and wet patches soaked in BTE, about 4 patches of each.
Step 5: Repeat step 2, 4 more times or until patches come out clean.
Step 6: If patches are not clean, i brush with a nylon brush soaked in BTE 25 times down and back.
Step 7: Repeat step 2, 4 more times or until patches come out clean.
Step 8: If patches are still dirty, repeat step 4 and 5.
Step 9: If patches are still not coming out clean, go visit your local smith for a rebarrel.
