    I use the Stoney Point all in one bore guide. It seems to work well and adapts to many different calibers and actions. Can't speak for other brands as this is all have used.

    Without a doubt, you need to contact Mike Lucas and use his 2 piece bore guides. Phone: 803-356-0282.

    They are the ONLY bore guides I use, have ever used, and ever recommend. Stoney Point is good, Sinclair is good. Lucas 2 piece bore guides are excellent.

    jimm,
    I take the middle ground stoney point makes many fine products but a bore guide is not one of them, lucas does make the best bore guide but sinclair is not bad for far less money (yes I own all 3) my advice buy a sinclair and spend your extra money on a better bullet.
