cleaning rods:
Dewey or Bore Tech.(coated rods) Price donít matter to me when buying rods because the few extra $$ you spend on good rods will save you $$ money in long run.
Barrels these days cost 230 to 300 plus the 150 for the chamber job. Why use some junk rod that will waste a match barrel in one pass down the bore.
Brushes:
Bruno bronze brushes or Sinclairs

Thatís my word:

I use the Dewey coated rod and jag, the wrap around 40 cal. patches seem to clean better for me. I don't use brushes, except to wrap patches on to clean the chamber. Never have needed them really. I let the Sweets do the work, and JB to finish up sometimes.

I use Bore Tech rods and brushes. The price of a good rod doesn't compare to what it will save you in the long run.

I used Dewey rods for several years, and really loved them. I got my first Bore-Tech a few months ago and I will probably never buy another Dewey if a Bore-Tech is available.

The difference is unbelievable.

Bore Tech rods are the best. $500 barrel and chamber is worth more than $35 rod.

I do not use bronze brushes anymore. I use the hard bristle "Kleen Bore" plastic bristle brushes. Montana Extreme bore cleaner on the brush heavy and about 10-15 strokes. Then patches with ME on it. Every 2-3 matches or so use isso bore paste or JB on brush and work on throat to keep carbon ring build up down. two patches with Kroil and then two dry patches.

Why do you all like the Bore Tech rod over the Dewey? I have not see them anywhere. I have heard the same positive things about tham though.
