Lazy mans bore cleaning

http://www.sharpshootr.com/ Used this stuff called WIPEOUT over a year now, just put my bore guide in. Shake up the can squirt down the boreguide till it comes out the muzzle. Set for a hour, I leave it overnight. Best part here you don't have to brush, it also has a rust inhibitor in the foam so you dont need to run an oil patch. Push your dry patch through in the morning and a whole bunch of blue liquid comes out. I usually repeat this a second time, it gets all the copper out.

    USe it combined with their product called Accelerator and it works even faster.

    I like Wipeout too, but I have found no substitute for brushing.

    Wipeout is the best stuff I've tried. It works great and its super easy.

    A couple of things...

    1. Use the accelerator.
    2. Dont leave in more than 24 hours or it gets a little sticky.
    3. If storing your rifle long term, oil anyway. I must say that I put it away without oiling one season and it was fine. But why take a chance.

    Re: Lazy mans bore cleaning

    Here is something I learned about Wipeout. The foam settles on the bottom half of the bore and does a much better job of removing fouling on the bottom than it does on the top. If you let it sit in the barrel overnight and plan on a second application the next day, rotate the rifle 180 degrees so that the top of the bore is now on the bottom before reapplying the foam.

    I tested this out on a Weatherby which copper fouls quite a bit and found that the second application with an inverted rifle produced quite a bit more blue goo after the initial application.
