Default Damn this .22lr Jag!!!

Ok so to the point. Iv got my Ruger 10/22 and I cant seem to find a single jag thatll go from muzzle to chamber (as it wont even enter the muzzle) or from chamber to muzzle (as it wont make it all the way before becoming stuck). This isnt the first jag Iv had this problem with. Any advice or can someone at least tell me where the hell I can get a jag thatll work?!

Any help is appreciated!

It is not the jag it is the patch. Get patches made for 17 to 22 cal rimfires.

second on the patches. I find that round patches work better with the smaller calibers.
Maybe you might find a bore snake easier

Im fairly sure I have the .22 patches, but they are the square cut ones. Have to look into some round ones I suppose.


Thanks guys!

For inquiring minds.....
What type/brand of cleaning rod and jag are you using?

And it IS a jag - not a slotted patch holder, correct?

If your patch extends beyond the jag recess it will jam in the barrel. Maybe just cutting the corners of the square ones and ensuring the patch rear will fall behind the jag into the recess
IMO only that part of the jag shoulder does the cleaning and the rest is along for the ride and to pick up loose stuff

Open for debate....

I was taught a long time ago to only start from the chamber, never go in backwards.

Anyone else ever heard this?

Make sure you have a jag for a 22LR which is a bullet diameter = .223 in, Not a jag intended for the .223 Rem which is a bullet diameter = .224 in.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Heard it hundreds of thousands of times, but its the only way unless you have a bore snake. I clean my marlin 60 from muzzle to chamber with a new patch each time through, I haven't seen anything that would indicate it is affecting accuracy.
