Re: Boretech or KG bore solvents

The 2 best (and most expensive accessories I own) are the Bench Source annealer and the Hawkeye Bore scope.

Nothing beats being able to actually look inside the mysterious tunnel that goes from the chamber to the crown.......

Re: Boretech or KG bore solvents

I have used a bunch of the "best" solvents including KG. Bore Tech removed more copper when they were done.

I have not tried C4 yet. I start by pushing wet patches of Eliminator through the bore until they start getting light colored. Then I push a brush through and pull it back just inside the muzzle, stand the rifle up on it's butt, then drop a few drops (liberally) down over the brush and into the bore. Then stroke it a few times. Then let it sit about 20 min or so. Then wet patch it out and repeat the cycle. I use Eliminator until I dont see any more carbon traces, then I switch to CU+2.

The reason I start with Eliminator is because carbon and copper are laid down in layers each time you shoot and Eliminator removes both. When I start seeing blue patches only, I switch to CU+2.

You can not use bronze/brass jags and brushes because the Boretech will start eating them immediately and cause a false copper indication.

+1, also, if you are doing break in, use eliminator, i just broke in a barrel using C4 and CU+2 and it took a while because i had to let two different solvent do their work, eliminator would have been much faster.

Currently I am using nickel platted jags but they wear and expose the brass. I will be switching to Boretech proof positive jags. Another thing I do is put my BTE and CU+2 into little 1 oz eye drop bottles which makes it much easier to use and dispense. The Boretech bottles drip all over.
