    This stuff is what I use now. Both have sort of a soapy/foamy nature which means that they might contain detergents and possibly be water based. Whatever tho, they work. It's ok to use them together, but it is advised not to mix them. At the range I usually let the stuff work in the barrel for a few minutes, but at home it's oftentimes longer.

    Another thing. I use the .410 size bore mops to clean the chamber and bolt lug raceways. When they get grungy you can put a couple drops of dish soap on them, work it in and rinse well with water. They dry out nice.

    Just clean the rifle whenever you get time. Life's too short for all this "hubbub" about cleaning. So what if you have to brush it a few more strokes....

    That "wipe out" is some pretty good stuff!

    Frequently, after using a Wipe-out product, I find that there is still some carbon in the grooves. I use either the old Birchwood Casey Bore Solvent or Liquid Wrench for a few patches and that seems to work on the carbon. Either of those pretty much evaporates, so I don't worry about hurting a stainless barrel.

    Anyone ever tried plugging the bore with a cork and filling the barrel with say a mix of liquid wrench and charcoal starter fluid and letting it sit around to soak?

    I tried extra virgin olive oil and liquid tide once.

    Dave,

    I'll have to pass that on to Smallwood and see what he does with that

    Smallwood lives Colorado. He would make some kind of salad out of that and smoke it in a bong.

    nah, he's already a bona-fide space cadet.

    Scott, this is a compliment, really.

    Rocket man he is Richard. He's flying around in his souped up car explaining to the police why he's doing a hundred in a 35mph zone. Probably blame the salad Mark mentioned.
