I am trying to clean my Remington BDL .223. I have 3 different jags from reputable companies and none of them will push the patch through the barrel. The patch will just wedge into the barrel at the end of the bore guide. They are all .22 cal jags. The patches are cotton aprox 1 inch by 1 inch and the bag says they are for .22 cal. The jags will slide through with out the patch. So my thought is that the patch is to thick, but they seem to be the same thickness as the patches I use for my .30-06. Have any of you ever heard of something like this? I am thinking I might try a .20 caliber jag, but that just does not seem right.
