Riley, if you broke a rod, and it was not defective, or too small for the caliber, maybe you should look into these things. One, was the patch and jag combo too tight? Two, were you flexing the rod with sideways pressure?
Proper cleaning strokes are something we need to practice. They should be a little firm but not hard to push through. Also, try to keep the rod aligned with bore center all the time for a smooth slow stroke. Once you get the feel for this you will be able to actually feel what is still in the bore and where. Plus many times you can hear the spots that are clean as well as dirty.
Just a suggestion.
