More opinions on Bore Snakes

In regards to the current discussion on accuracy of fouled vs. clean bores on Shawn's "Smallest 3 shot group" thread what opinoins does the group have on Bore Snakes and their role in a cleaning regiment/kit?

    I have some from years ago....they sit right next to my aluminum cleaning rods.

    I have no gripes with them, just don't use them anymore.

    I use a bore snake for cleaning my 22s exclusively, and I put the 30 cal snake in my pack to clear pine needles, moisture etc out of the bore when I am "out in the bush". I prefer a cleaning rod for my centerfire rifles when I am at home.

    Re: More opinions on Bore Snakes

    Bore snakes are great for removing carbon after each shot when in the field
    and when working up loads for group size.

    They don't clean as well as a good rod and solvent cleaning.

    I carry one with me in my pac for field use and they work well to sweep
    the bore clear of powder residue,dust,moisture and any other foreign
    objects that could increase barrel wear.

    i use mine on .22's and have one for each of my encore barrels. I haven't found a bore guide that will fit my encore barrels and the bore snakes work great when out shooting pd's or cleaning at the range.

    My gunsmith likes them because he gets work rebarreling rifles when guys put the snake in part way then move it back the other way and gets stuck.
