Yep, Hoppes #9 fan here as well. I like the smell almost as good as my first cup of coffee in the morning!

Default MPro-7 beats all other cleaners, hands down!

You can clean with Hoppe's, Otis, Breakfree, Birchwood Casey, et al, THEN do it again with MPro-7 and you will still get more lead out. I still like Sweet's 7.62 to get the copper out. To find out more go to MPro-7.com or google it. You'll see the difference.

Default Home Mix

I use 'Ed's Red'. A formula popularized by gunwriter Ed Harris.

In a nutshell it is equal parts of acetone, aliphatic mineral spirits, deoderized kerosene and Dexron III ATF.

Mix outdoors in a well ventilated area and wear chemical resistant gloves if using for frequent cleaning of several guns. (I use the blue nitrile exam gloves.)

It cuts fouling quickly and dissolves plastic fouling from shotgun wads. The ATF components protects metal against rust and it's cheap. I mix a gallon at a time and I can clean a LOT of guns with that. I usually give away a quart or two to friends that find out how fast and efficiently it works.

There's is an actual recipe and explanation of the development of it on a few forums, but I can't remember the source I found it on just now.

WIPE OUT the best yet. one shot of the foam , leave overnight. push patch through the next day. there aint nothing left. no copper, powder, or anything else left in the bore. clean as a whistle. makes cr10 look like a nose spray.

Ed's red for bore cleaner - EastKY_DO mentioned it. I made some about 7-8 years ago and put it in smallish jars. Other better quality/ appropriate for exteriors. Ed's red has been through all my guns for a while now and it seems to perform well for a homemade mixture.

Good thread.

I recently switched over to Break Free CLP. Spray the gun down, let it sit for an hour or so, and wipe/scrub clean. Plus, Break Free absorbs into the metal, similar to the Z-Max commercials you see on TV.
