Why did you not apply for a $25,000 government grant?So there's my highly unscientific test. I had higher hopes for wipeout, but not surprised that Montana did well, very surprised how well the Hoppes foaming cleaner did. I figure I'll definitely keep buying the montana for sure, and probably will incorporate the hoppes a little more than the wipeout in the future depending on whether I am trying to get at copper too or just carbon. I like the eezox for oiling down my shotgun to prevent rust, but the rest of these aren't going to make the cut for future purchases.
Thanks for this great post and the time you spent that benefits all of us.I would definitely love to test more products, but these are all I have on hand.
Carb cleaner seems to work ok... Based solely on what i saw here I would say if using it to clean a rifle I would probably want to run wet patch, then brush, then dry patch and repeat. It seems to remove in layers for lack of better words...it dries almost immediately and seems no easier to wipe away after an hour of application than immediately after.
