    I was just wondering what cleaning juice or paste and method everybody uses. I've seen and heard of lots of Home Brews and such just wanted to see what was the most popular.

    What works well for me is JB bore paste. To clean that out after cleaning, I use Hopps powder solvent. Once thats out, I run a patch of light oil down the tube to prevent mass copper fouling from the foul round.

    I just started using Montana Extreme and, so far, I am nothing short of impressed.

    I use it to clean a couple of revolvers that metal foul pretty bad and the stuff seems as efficient as Sweets without the hydroscopic attitude.

    My previous favourites were Sweet's & CR-10, but that may change with the advent of Extreme.

    I really like JBs, but I now want to try Montana's bore paste for a comparison.

    2/3 Shooter's Choice - 1/3 Kroil for normal cleaning.
    Sweet's for copper.
    JB if needed.

    Sometimes straight Kroil for normal cleaning, also.

    Where do you buy Montana Extreme and is it safe from stainless barrels?

    What else would you have besides Copper or Moly?. Use Sweets 7.62 for it all

    The combination Chris said, JB, then the SC/Kroil combo again.

    I'm with Chris and Brent on this one. SC/Kroil combo for routine cleaning. Sweets to occasionally reduce visible copper at the muzzle and JB when ever I think it may help.
