bore guides

Wts the best of the bore guides to use? I want one that seals in the barrel as best it can and stays in the bolt arm slot. The one I have is junk.

    I llke the Tipton Universal Guide (Tipton Universal Bore Guide)
    If offers a variety of tips (small, .17-.24; medium, 25-.30; and large, for .30. They seal well in the chamber (a slight push on the rear while aligning and tightening the stop collar lock is all it takes to create a pretty good seal)
    Because it's universal in design I don't have to have a collection of specific "o" ring seal guides (like I formerly did) to cover every caliber rifle I own.

    Re: bore guides

    Get the Lucas, they are custom made. Send him the make, model and caliber along with info on the cleaning rod you use. You will receive a guide that will protect your lands and keep your barrel accurate longer. Mr. Lucas is a great guy and a supporter of youth shooting. This subject is a very neglected topic. You will not be disappointed.
