    I have used just about everything. Bore Tech Eliminator, Shootes Choice, Sweets, Barnes CR-10, Montana Extreme etc.

    Well ME has a new product that beats anything else hands down. It is called Montana Extreme 50 BMG. Got a sample bottle this week at the IBS 1000 Yard Nationals.

    My heavy gun has little over 2100 rounds through the barrel so took it to Tim North, Broughton Barrels to have him look at it with borecope and tv monitor. Had tons of copper in 4 inches in front of the chamber. Had just cleaned it too.

    Took it back to the bench and put some 50 BMG in bore and nylon brushed it. Dark blue started rolling out the barrel. 2-3 other shooters watching wanted to know what I was using that caused that much blue to come out so fast.

    bottom line 30 minutes later, we took the gun back to Tim. It was clean of all copper totally. However need new barrel. Surprise after 2100 of the 300 WSM rounds. Only placed 5th in HG score and 26th in HG group for 16th overall in 2 gun.

    So Tim gets an order for a new 1.450" straight 12" twist 30 cal barrel and I am using 50 BMG now exclusively.

    go to to see web and 50 bmg is not even listed yet, but contact Danny and Linda Huffman and try it.

    Does it smell like ammonia? If it does, i have the recipe for it.

    Yep, smells like ammonia but also cuts carbon out super fast too. Seen a couple of the home brews but this is really different from the way it acts.

    I got a sample bottle and after cleaning my rifle and looking at it on Tims scope picked up 3 more bottles for $5 per bottle

    Bounty Hunter, I just ordered a couple of bottles to try out. My 340 has that same buildup about 3 to 4 inches in front of the throat, hope this works. They are currently backordered until early next week. I will post on here if it manages to remove that crud in my 340. Thanks for the tip.

    I have never heard of the spoonge from Answer products. I did a search and found them.

    Interesting stuff. I'd like to hear more about from users who have used it. I did get a kick out of there direction on how to use clean a rifle.

    You'd think they were talking to a bunch of guys who do nothing but watch TV. LOL! First product I've ever heard about that uses TV commericals for time intervals and how and when to clean.

    Great marketing concept.

    I would really like to hear how it works.

    BountyHunter and other's,
    I have also tried just about every gun cleaning product ,some are better than other's but a friend of mine told me about
    a new product and I have used it exclusively
    for the last couple of month's, it absolutely
    kick's butt on every other cleaner on the market, I know many of you are saying RIIIIght just like I did but if you try it
    you will be pleasantly surprised. it is
    called Hunter's Extreme Copper Melt and is
    made in Canada. it is different to use than
    most cleaners and hard to find since they
    wont answer there phone but well worth the
    trouble to find

    Alliant Techsystems have a new foaming bore cleaner which comes in a pressure pack with a tube that fits into the chamber . It's called Gunslick Foaming Bore Cleaner . Sounds convenient and apparently works . Has no Ammonia or "harsh chemicals". I'm going to try it .

    Something that is readily available that works very well is Janitorial grade Ammonia cleaner. Not the sudsy stuff you find in the grocery store. This stuff is very concentrated.

    Just look up janitorial suppliers in the yellow pages. A gallon jug cost me $14 Cdn and will last several lifetimes.

    On a patch, it will dissolve copper that other cleaners leave behind. This stuff is not to be left overnight. Swab it in, swab it out. Cleans my rough pitted military barrels in a few minutes. I also use nylon Kleen bore brushes to speed things a long. Forget about brass or any metal bristle brush. Now you see it, now you don't.

    You better use this stuff outside. I use a powder solvent first then finish up with the ammonia. Never tried mixing the two to form a all in one cleaner. I just do the steps separately and it seems to work very well.

    This method also does not disturb the moly in the barrel too much. Settles down quickly without having to use preps.

    I have used Spooge for years, since I worked at Answer Prioducts as head smith.
    While there, we refined it twice.
    Now running my own shop I use it, and sell it.
    It is the best stuff I have tried, although I have not tried that montana stuff, since Spooge works so well I need nothing else. it cuts carbon and copper very fast.

    The name is going to be changed soon as an employee of Answer bought the company.
    I think it is going to be called Sam's stuff or mix or something of that nature.
    The muzzle brakes they make are better quality and easier to work with than before. Great brakes too! Very, very efficient.

    I see you have used everything that I have put down the barrel also, except one - Wipe Out.

    This stuff is truely a fast acting bore cleaner and I am amazed at it everytime I use it.
    Spray it in the barrel, wait 5 minuts, patch out and look at the "blue" patch!

    I have went back thru the bore with "sweets" after using Wipe Out and the patch will only have just a trace of bluing. Its ammona free also.

    I will definatly be stocking up on this product.
