I have always run a brush through any barrel from the breech end to the muzzle and then when it went out the end. I never pulled it back, but instead removed the brush and then pulled the rod back and started over. I was told to never push it out and pull it back. Is this for real? I am really getting tired of this if it's bunk. How do you guys clean a dirty bore. I use a one piece rod and bore guide, etc---it's the technique I want to know.
