There is a very interesting article in the Nov. issue of American Rifleman on this subject. I have found that every barrel I've had is a little different but have learned that often a barrel will shoot better if you don't clean it to death. I have a 6.5 currently that likes to have some copper left in it. This is a custom (lapped) barrel made by a well known barrel maker. If I completely clean out all of the copper, it takes quite a few rounds before my group size comes back. CLEANER IS NOT "ALWAYS BETTER"! I have talked to some benchresters that have found the same to be true......Rich
I've broke in three rifle barrrels, one new Sako Finnlight 300 WSN and two used Senderos, 300 RUM and 25-06. With the Senderos I used Gun Juice. Saw a reduction in fouling in each rifle.
I'll be posting a thread on my experience with the Gun Juice soon.
I'm a believer in barrel break-in. I now use Gun Juice when breaking in barrels. I've used Gun Juice on about 7 rifle barrels and one 454 Casull revolver. Same experience with every bore. Fouling is reduced and any fouling that occurs is removed ever so quickly with cotton patches and KG-1 and KG-12 products. I'm sure the bores would clean up equally well with other quality bore cleaners and patches also. However the bores don't require much cleaning because they foul so little. I believe the Gun Juice lays down a thin protective film which also helps protect the bore from corrosion.
It is time consuming to properly treat bores with Gun Juice, but I'll continue until someone comes out with a better mouse trap.
