Bore Snake and a 32" barrel?


PDA

I've been using the pistol-sized bore snakes for my revolvers and short-barreled pistol caliber carbines for a few years, and I really like them.

However, I'm going to be getting my hands on a rifle with a 32" barrel, and was wondering if the cord on the rifle-sized bore snake would be long enough to drop through the barrel so I can pull it through from the other end. I am having trouble finding cord measurements for these online.

Could anyone speak to that? Perhaps someone has one and could measure the cord. The one I would be using is for a .458 rifle (.45-70).

Thanks!

I have a .22lr (green rifle length) boresnake laid out on the floor.

It's 69" overall, with 40" of 550 cord and 29" of mop.

Awesome. Should be plenty long then. Thanks a lot!

I have 32" barrels on my shotguns - the cords drop a good way past the muzzle

My .45cal bore snake is more than enough to accommodate that 32in. bore.

If it's not long enough cut it and tie in a piece of gutted parachute cord.

If it's not long enough cut it and tie in a piece of gutted parachute cord.While it is probably more than strong enough, the strength is in the "guts". I would keep the cores just in case, it would be a PITA to retrieve if it broke half-way through.
