Re: Cleaning rod of choice?
I use a brass rod for my pistol. For 20 years or so I used a wooden rod for my 30 cal rifles, until it cracked a few weeks ago, now I use the shaft of a graphite arrow.
I usually use the rods for the brushes, then use nylon string to pull the patch through.
"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."-- Samuel Adams
