Re: How clean to get barrel using Tubbs kit
When I used it on my daughters rifle I ran a nylon brush through from breech to muzzle only, and hosed it off with carb cleaner after each pass followed by patches till I saw no color on the patches, then shoot again.
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
