I use a rod and brush with hoppes #9. I use a boresnake instead of a patch. I throw mine in the washing machine every now and then.

Romans 1:16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.

I usually run it through dry a couple times, then put a couple drops of solvent and the end near the string, and then a couple drops of oil at the distal end. That way it gets oiled too. I love the bore snakes though, only tear down my guns completely after a few shooting trips now.

Hmm. I take Ballistol and spray it directly in the barrel, wait a bit, then bore snake it twice. Looks beautiful after, clean and shiny. I wash the snakes from time to time in a mesh bag.
