Dang, I hope so. I use Hoppe's (or Shooters Choice copper remover on the big rifles after lots of shooting) to clean, CLP to coat (Or Militec-1).;)


(edit):

And what romulus says below is right on!

I wouldn't let Hoppe's or any ammoniated solvent for that matter sit in a barrel for any length of time...

I thought Hoppes#9 was a nitro based solvent?

With Hoppes or any other solvent, you need a second step of some sort of protectant on the bore. If you don't mind another bottle on the shelf or in the drawer, Tetra-Gun sells a lubricant that's the cat's meow for bore treatment. This is after you use bore solvent of course. Break-Free is an outstanding product if you are only planning on using one product. It's fine to protect your bore for long-term. Once a year, I clean all of my guns I haven't shot and leave some Break-Free in the bore from a wet patch. Before I shoot any gun, I run a dry patch down the bore and dry the chamber as best I can.
