    Can Bare Tech Eliminator be used in season to clean a muzzleloader, or does its residue tend to get soaked up by powder and cause ignition problems the way oil based solvents do?

    What do you mean by "in season"?

    Well I just shot both my 54s about 8 shots each. Pyrodex powder. I won't be using them for about a week or 10 days when I first plan to hunt. I cleaned most of the powder fowling out with Windex and clean patches. I don't want any fouling to start over the next week, but I know better than to use oil based products. I think Eliminator is different, but I am not sure.

    I had never heard of that Eliminator cleaning product before.
    Their website says that it's 100% biodegradable and that it only needs to be swabbed with a dry patch before shooting to remove it. (See the product use instruction link below)
    I suppose that if a person wanted to be extra safe then they could do some extra swabbing over a period of a couple of days or more to remove as much of it as possible from the pores of the steel before shooting or hunting.
    Maybe using another "safe solvent" that rapidly evaporates like 90% alcohol or similar would help to insure that almost every trace of the Eliminator is removed and that only the bare steel remains.
