Bore Cleaning...

Ok, well I've accumulated a lot of bore cleaning products recently to test which works best in removing fouling in my 22-250.

The products I have are:

Remington 40-x Bore Cleaner
Remington Brite Bore
Hoppes 9 Solvent
Breakfree CLP (aerosol)
Gunslick Gun Seal (aerosol)

I've basically counted out Remington 40-x and Brite Bore. Just really didn't see to much good coming from them. I think Hoppe's 9 is working pretty well. Gunslick Gun Seal seems to work just about as well as Hoppe's 9, and I've heard that it provides a longer lasting coat of protection. I haven't used the CLP yet in the bore and am wondering how well it'll work.

Which do you think I should use?

I was thinking of doing regular cleaning with the Hoppe's, and then putting a coat of either Gun Seal or CLP on after to prevent rust.

The 40-x and Brite Bore I am thinking about tossing.

Anything I am missing?

Thanks alot,

Auburn

I think you're on the right path. If you clean regularly two basic products are all you need.

People work out their own methods. Here is mine: A dry patch to remove unburned powder, a patch soaked in Hoppes, then a brush. Let the Hoppes soak in so it can work deep. Meanwhile clean the action, etc. Go back to the bore with dry patches. Finish with one patch with Breakfree CLP.

Bores stay nice and shiney.

You're fine with the products mentioned but save the Gun Seal for long term storage.
