    Which one is top dog? I have heard great things about both but I am looking for the better of the two. Which one is quicker and cleans better?

    I have used the Montana Extreme copper killer (50 BMG) With great success! It is very potent. I also use sweets 7.62 7.62 Bore Cleaning Solvent 200 ml Liquid I advise cleaning outside or n the garage with the door open. Wifey doesn't like the smell of cleaning solvents in the house! LOL

    Started using Bore Tech Eliminator this year and works great. No smell, has the consistency of mineral oil and cleans up a barrel super fast. I used to use hoppes and JB bore paste but this is much faster and not abrasive. Follow the directions to the letter and it just plain works!

    I have compared the BTE and the MT extreme. After the MT extreme was done I went back in with BoreTech and got more copper. Plus the BTE is not amonia based so yo dont get the smell and worry of barrel damage if left in too long. Also I have found that (as stated on the lable) BTE is all you need to leave in your barrel for storage protection against rust and corsion. No oil needed so no need for fouling shots to burn out the oil. Just patch it dry when ready to shoot. This process has eliminated the need for foulers in my rifles. First round accuracy is on to past 1000 yards.

    I have compared BTE to MT extreme, Sweets 7.62, Shooters Choice, Barnes CR-10, and many others. It's BoreTech Cleaners for me.

    I've used both of them and also thought that they both worked good. But have you tried Wipeout foaming bore cleaner? This stuff is some of the best cleaner that I have used. If you use it along with their accelerator it doesn't take long for your bore to be clean. This stuff works. Plus if you use it along with a bore guide it is a snap to clean up and doesn't make a mess. I think bore tech and Montana xtreme are good, but wipeout is far better in my opinion.

    I have the gunslick foam, but I think I will be going to the wipeout w/accelerator. I have to apply too many applications and those are overnight too. Also since the Montana has ammonia in it I think I'll be going with BTE. I have heard way more positive about that than the Montana extreme. I don't want anything with ammonia in it and also it stinks bad.

    Well MTE 50bmg copper killer stinks...real bad, like something slapped you in the face. So if your looking for something that doesn't stink real bad then BTE is the way to go. That or, KG12 works good too. I recently got a bottle of that and am impressed also. But still, the mother of cleaning made easy in my opinion is the wipeout and accelerator. Just easy, little to no scrubbing and just push a few patches.

    Can you help me out with the CU+2. I don't know what this is. How or is this different than BTE?

    In addition to the BTE, I am going to get the Wipeout+accelerator, as I think this is different and better than the Gunslick I now use.

    I haven't found a good one yet. Montana was OK but CR-10 works better in my gun. Spent about $10 on Gunslick foam and it was absolutely worthless. Filled the barrel with foam and let sit 30 minutes, 3 times and never got copper. One patch of cr-10 looked like a blue berry. Getting kind of tired of buying solvent that's for sure. Nobody around here carries Wipeout.
