    I hope someone here can help me find shotgun bore scrubbing strips like shown in attached photo. The replaceable strips have steel wool embedded and do a great job eliminating lead streaking and other hard fouling. I bought it many years ago and finally ran out of the strips, there is no name on it and I can't remember the maker's name or where I got it. Hope to find same or similar, help will be much appreciated DSC00166.JPG .

    I’ve never seen those before.

    I use strips of copper choreboy wrapped around the appropriate gauge bore brush. It cleans a barrel of everything and does so very fast.

    Looks like an overgrown Lewis Lead Remover.

    Kind of looks like a strip of Velcro.

    Butchs Bore Shine and the chore boy work great in my old 860 pump. A couple of swipes after a heavy dove day and the lead and plastic is gone. I've found CLP helps keep the fouling out if I finish up with a few mops and patches after cleaning.

    I use BreakFree CLP on all of my firearms. It’s not new, fancy or cool anymore but I’ve also found I get less fouling by using it.

    I started using the clp after shooting lead in my 44 and 45 Henry's. Before leaving the range I drag a soaked bore snake through about 5 times and very minimal cleaning when I take bolts out and use a rod and patches. I'm getting little to no leading. Shotgun different but the rifles I usually pull a patch of bore blaster through before shooting or it takes 8-10 shots to settle back in. I can use it in the house too. Butchs Bore Shine I have to use outdoors. Stinks to high heaven.

    A little brake cleaner followed by a bronze brush and then a patch or two will do the job.
