    Everyone who uses Coppermelt uses nylon brushes that are small for the caliber and then we wrap a patch around the brush. Otherwise the coppermelt would destroy the bronze brushes. Be sure to keep stainless steel brushes away from your gun.

    Any strong copper remover will destroy bronze brushes quickly.

    I use either the Montana Extreme or Kleen Bore nylon brushes. Both are hard bristle and I like those better.

    You are correct many BR shooters, both short and LR are using the plastic bristle brushes and ME 50 BMG. It not only takes out the copper quickly it also removes the carbon ring in front of the chamber and first couple inches of the throat.
