Hey guys, I have a question regarding cleaning. I went shooting last Friday and I only put 15 rounds through my 220 Swift. When I went to clean her, it was super hard to get the bore brush through the barrel. My rod was bending heavily at the beginning of the barrel, once it was through the first part of the barrel, it went through smoothly. The other times I have cleaned her, it was never this hard to get the brushes through the barrel and yes I am using the correct size brushes. Has anybody else had this problem or is this common with 22 caliber rifles. Please, any information would be great.
