Re: Tough time getting patches through my barrel - Help!!

Gene, that is a real good idea. I've used it to remove carbon in engines for years. Thanks for the hint. A good bore lite might also point out where the catch is located and what it might look like. Been the double patch situation also.

Have a great day.

Rifle is shooting well!!

It seems that if you stick the patch dead center, its tough to push through. Started sticking the patches slightly off center, and now going through barrel with no problems.

Thanks for everyones input/suggestions.

Jeff
