    Do I need one? No. Do I want one? Oh yeah!
    I have rem bore cleaner and I notice its starting to come out dirty muddy after I shake it :confused: It says "shake before use" I dont shake it and comes out nice and clean like, But if I shake it, it will come out dirty and muddy :fire: so should I not shake it up? I bought some hoppes #9 it was half the price of rem bore cleaner :)

    Yea dude.. Shake that thing!

    After you shake it, what your seeing is the additives that are normally settled to the bottom of the bottle suspended in the base oil.

    The oil appears clear after the bottle has set awhile and the additives have settled back to the bottom of the barrel. :D

    Shake that thing! I prefer Hoppes for my barrel but your Bore cleaner will work fine...It just won't have that legendary smell.

    Just make sure the worm in the bottom is still intact, if it is, then its still good.

    Rem bore cleaner is a mild abrasive that works very well on copper and carbon fouling. Make sure you don`t get it in the action or other moving parts though, it can cause undo wear.
