Cleaning rod length...?????

Hi Guys,

Hope you all enjoy the 4th........

What size and brand cleaning rods are you guys using for those longer barrel 30"+ scoped rifles? I have a 30" and another on the way, and I don't want too long a rod.


As always thanks,
Frank D

I like bore tech rods. I would get a 50 inch rod for a 30 inch barrel I have a 56 inch rod for a 34 inch barrel

For the over 30" barrels, BoreTech is the only way to go. They go all the way out to 60"

Thanks Crow Mag, and Bounty Hunter. If I can get away with a 50" rod for a 30" barrel thats the way for me to go. I borrowed one but forgot what length it was.

Enjoy the holiday
