Anyone ever clean there guns with this and is it any good
That is interesting... the bore typically isn't what a person needs to clean on a shotgun, though. If I could shoot a cartridge that would soak and scrub chokes, I would think about it - haha
I just use a boresnake. Its just too easy of an option NOT to use- 2 passes with some solvent on it, and done. Clean the snake with hot water and dish soap when it starts to look funky. I stick all my boresnakes (I use 5 or 6 different ones) in a plastic gallon jug about 1/2 full of hot water and a shot of dish soap, and shake the heck out of it, let it sit a bit, and repeat 2 or 3 times. Dump the nasty water out, and repeat the process twice with just hot water, then let them sit in the jug soaking for a while (1/2 hour, or whenever Mrs FL-NC tells me to get that trash off the kitchen counter) then I take them out and hang them up to dry in the shed.
Well, it's got propellant in it. And to me using something with propellant in it to clean powder fouling out a shotgun bore, is kind of...heck, I don't know what that is, but it's just weird.
Soooo...its a disposable bore mop and bristle brush with solvent pre-applied to the sponge at one end. At $6 a pop, $30 for the kit, that will clean just the bore of your 12ga shotgun 5 times (assuming they don't dry out before the 5th time you need to clean the barrel)....imma gonna hafta say not for me. At most, I probably consume about 50 cents of material cleaning my shotgun each time. And I get the bolt de-gunkified. I do that once a year whether it needs it or not
Saw something like that on the shelf at Wal-mart one of the last times I went. Price makes for a pass. I think it was $10 for a box of 5. Usually when I take my 12ga out, I don't stop shooting until my shoulder hurts. And I don't think even a box of 5 will get it that clean after enough rounds. So eh, no.
