Default Cleaning a .22 Mag?

I don't normally worry too much about cleaning a .22lr because there's no copper fouling to worry about, and that seems to be the consensus among most .22lr shooters. But there is copper fouling in a .22 mag so I cleaned the .22 mag I just got like I would a center fire, and I was curios as to how others approach their .22 mag. Do you clean it like a center fire or treat it like a .22lr?

Hrm...I tend to treat all barrels the same...use three boresnakes on 'em for regular cleaning...
and one-piece rod & brush for serious cleaning...once/twice a year

Agreed. I usually boresnake mine every 25 rounds and seriously clean it every 50.

.22 Mag and .17 HMR both use bullets closer to jacketed center fires, and I treat them as such.
