Will a .41/.410 jag fit a .40?

    No one at the gun show or my local dealer had 10mm/.40 cleaning jags. One dealer said the .41/.410 jag should fit. Before I do anything stupid like get the jag and patch stuck in the barrel, does anyone know if this works?

    Otherwise I'll just have to look elsewhere or mail order one.

    Thanks.

    Seems simple to me. .41 is bigger than .40. It's only a 'hundredth', but add the patch thickness and I think you're headed for a stuck rod. Check your local Walmart or sporting goods store. They usually have a good selection of cleaning supplies.

    Bowhunter is right. You'd have to use really thin patches. I've been faced with this situation before, and ended up using pieces of a bedsheet. It worked, but it was tough getting the jag down the bore.
