    Does anyone know of a good copper and carbon remover in one? I have always bought separate products. Im almost out of gun cleaning stuff and need to replenish. Is there any new stuff that does good?

    Some claim the foaming bore cleaners do that.
    I must admit I haven't tried it though.

    The fact is however, that a copper solvent harsh enough to remove copper in a reasonable amount of time is too harsh for everyday gun cleaning, and not needed anyway.

    I use the best copper solvent I can find for heavy jacket fouling, and Hoppe's #9 for everything else.

    The best I've found is "Hoppe's Elite Gun Cleaner", and their "Hoppe's Elite Copper Terminator". Both work as advertised. Let them soak for a short while - 10 or 15 minuets in my experience - and viola! A quick pass or two with a brush, then some patches(takes fewer patches in my experience as well!) 'till they come out clean then you are ready for the light thin film of oil. (I just put enough oil on a patch to wet the first 1/2" of patch and pass it through a couple of times. Don't forget to wipe out your barrel with a dry patch before you shoot again just in case you put too much oil in it.)

    I am a fan of WipeOut also. The foaming cleaner does not contain ammonia and is safe to leave it in overnight. I spray it in the barrel, let it set overnight, then patch out the next day. three patches and I'm through. No more scrubbing or noxious fumes.

    Gunslick Foaming Bore Cleaner works like a champ. I've been using it for the past year and it does clean the coper and junk out easily and quickly. Doesn't smell and has never taken more than two applications to take care of any copper etc.

    I've even followed up with Sweets looking for coper and come out with nice clean non-blue patches.
