Bought some today to see what the fuss is all about. I typically use Hoppes #9 on patches followed by a bore snake followed by Brite Bore and another snake or two. This has worked well. I have also used Frog Lube solvent and CLP. It's okay, smells good, but it's no better than my old method and products. Today I tried Ballistol. First impression, ugh does this stuff stink! It's okay as a cleaner. It's not the end all be all though, no better than my original method of cleaning.
