BossHoss, Thanks for taking the time to post this procedure. I have 3 rifles that haven't had a brush in them for a long time. All have had over a hundred rounds through them since I stopped brushing. One at a time, I'm going to use this cleaning regimen and see what comes out. I have a 7" Hawkeye that I can only look into the muzzles with, but I will inspect the bores before and after. The barrels are a .338 Shilen, a ,308 Hart, and a .284 Scherrer (cut rifled).

I'm using a bore guide, but not the Lucas. I'll check on it and see if what I have compares.

If my one brain cell can remember, I will report on what I find. It'll be a while though, I'm going to run away from home and go turkey hunting.

Thanks again, Tom

With the BR guys on this, brush em.
I admit that I know just enough to be dangerous.....but dangerous at ever extending distances.
