Fisherking,The only 22 ammo I shoot is Federal 36gr hollow point,my girls digest them well so I stick with Federal,but your correct once we change ammo brands,it takes a hell of a lot of shooting the new ammo,to achieve satisfactory accuracy!

Never used a bore snake before, but I'm getting so cleaning supplies after work so i might have to pick one up. So do they make that much of a difference when cleaning lands and grooves compared to the regular cleaning rod?

All I use for my 5.56 AR. A little CLP soak and two-four passes with a bore snake and its mirror shinny again. Much easier to store, and don't have to change out the brushes as with a rod from brass-nylon bristles-cotton-patches. But to each his own.

Drop weight through barrel, then step on weight with foot. Grasp rifle with both hands , Use legs and shoulders to pull rifle up to get the snake started. Snaking will get easier as time goes on.

To add. I also trail a patch treated with Miltec1 or Eesox. AFAIC It makes for an easier cleaning next go round.

I couldn't fine a .223 bore snake for my AR.

Will a .22 bored snake be sufficient or should I find a 5.56/.223 snake?
