Sorry about your problem.
I have never experanced any problem with them. however There is one improvement that
could be made to the bore snake, A positive identification of the caliber after it is taken out
of the package other than color.
I always check the caliber and place it on the bag I keep it in for that rifle.
Also I find it works well if I downsize one caliber (Like .277 for .284) and this makes it easier to
pull through and it still swabs the bore with the rope behind the brush. (all I,m trying to do is
sweep out the powder fouling any way).
