I use a patch soaked in Kroil before leaving the range. Let the Kroil soak for a few hours and wipe dry with a patch.

Then patches with alternating solvents, until they all come out clean (some remove copper better, and some remove powder residue better).

The Kroil loosens up the fouling, a trick I learned from some bench rest loonies.

I don't use brushes much anymore, other than in my ARs.

Kroil is good stuff. THe longer it sits the better is seems to do.

BTW, I'm a 'Loonie'.

I use the word with deep affection. Bench rest guys are SERIOUS about their shooting.
