    I have a combination cleaner in a single bottle for both powder and copper solvent so thats alright.
    (1) When they tell about using a brush are they talking about a metal brush ?
    (2) Am I suppose to push this brush both ways down the barrel front to back ?

    1) Yes, they're speaking of a bronze bore brush. Avoid stainless steel bore brushes like the plague for rifled bores.

    2) Yes; "Push a brush through the bore (5 times in each direction)"

    Thanks nicholst55. I thought I remember reading somewhere that it is important to either push or pull the brush starting from the action toward the muzzle end only and not to push/pull brush starting from muzzle end toward action.
