    Re: Solvent for carbon residue

    JB, I see a lot of bore tech products, but none called "eliminator". Is there a link to a place I can get some?

    Jeff, I also tried finding "top clean" and couldn't find it. What does the GM stand for?

    I have been using Hoppes #9 for years and I figure there has to be something better out there for removing carbon. How about Butches?

    Use a good search engine and type in the following:

    GM Top Engine Cleaner (about $9/can)
    You can substitute WalMart Carb cleaner @ 0.89/can and it does the same thing.

    BoreTech Eliminator:

    GM Top Cleaner - General Motors, they use it alot for cleaning Mercury aboard engines, that was the primary use...I think.

    I have read about people using it as far back as 20 yrs ago for cleaning rifle barrels.

    Solvent for carbon residue

    I would like to know your guys' opinion on the best solvent for carbon residue. I am not too concerned about the copper fouling since I have not had much of a problem with copper fouling since barrel break in, but carbon is the bad one. The local store here sells the old hoppes as well as shooter's choice. One better than the other?

    I've been using GM top engine cleaner for about 18yrs and now mix in about 25% kroil. Works great. Good luck.
