I'll ask my wife how she cleans it after she gets done making that batch of home brew beer for me.

I'm into reloading and have been since 1965, gun cleaning for C/F rifles is after every session, if there's any humidity in the air the unburnt powder will attract moisture causing rust or corrosion. I look at it ( as ) would you oil your rifle after being in the rain or not, it's up to you. I find Winchester powder rather dirty compared to IMR powders. I would advise shooters to try different manufactures and compare which leaves the least amount of residue ( Unburnt Powder ) in your rifle or pistol bore & stick with that manufacture.

when I lived in MN (with the humidity) I cleaned them all the time and used Break Free CLP for lube except for thebolt carrier on my AR target rifle, I'd use LSA on it, so it wouldn't smoke and burn your eyes in a match.

Down here in AZ, I clean them within a day or two. If I'm not busy immediately after shooting, I'll clean them.

GUN SCRUBBER works wonders for me fir many years and you don't even have to break down the firearm because it does such a great easy job.

do you happen to have a ruger mark I or mark II (the 22's that are hard to get back together)? If so, did you clean is with gunscrubber? and if you did, what did you follow up with for lube?
TIA
Bob

I've used MPro7, Militec, Boeshield, Remington,lube after cleaning my MKII. I take them after shooting a lot of rounds.

I like it and use it, At times you'll find a build up in corners and the hole in the breech face for the ejector/extractor. A dental pick work well.
For a lubricant Eezox (when I can find it), otherwise Remington Dri lube and Breakfree.

Depends on the gun but for most of mine, I must make sure that the barrel is COMPLETELY clean, whether or not that means taking the barrel completely off, doesn't matter to me. I prefer Remington gun lube, and most browning cleaning supplies suffice. Don't even get me started on Black Powder!

I'm probably the worst person to ask but:

ARs
After a heavy use session (several hundred rounds). 2x/year if lightly used which is most of the time

Semi Auto Handguns
After approx 200-300 rounds or maybe 2x/year if their not being used

Revolvers
If I get bored

FNAR (not sure how to classify)
before/after hunting season

Semi auto rimfire handguns
I don't think I ever have

.22 auto rimfire rifles
If/When I encounter problems

.17HMR/HM2 rifle
Before/After hunting season

Shotguns
I kinda remember cleaning them in the past

Bolt action or single action hunting rifles
I bang the barrel against a tree before hunting season to make sure nothing has made it's home in there


I also only change the oil in my truck every 7k or 8k miles. I suppose all this me negligent or lazy... take your pick.

IMHO I believe older powder was dirtier and didn't burn as well as modern. I have an old Colt brochure showing cops shooting one handed the other on the hip. It does say to clean right after session. Looks like a 20s 30s brochure. Personally I clean within a week mostly 2 days
