I know quite a few NRA highpower shooters who shoot about 5 to 10 matches (88 rounds per match) and only wipe down the bolt and bolt carrier, and wet patch the barrel with hoppes # 9 and then two dry patches.
They thoroughly clean the rifle at the END of the season.
Worked for me.

I use the bore foam cleaner then a non brass bristle brush to clean the bore. I find no wear to the bore with the foam cleaner. Then again when I go to the range I only shoot five rounds these days as a way to conserve ammo. If I can't hit where I'm aiming within the first five shots then I have some real concerns. I usually just swab out the barrel and coat it with a thin gun grease until I've shot enough rounds that mandate a good cleaning.

In a word, "Often". This because I'm constantly trying to test the products I retail, as well as the methods with which to use those products. I won't beat the drum for any particular maintenance products. I haven't found any "bad" ones.

I do a through cleaning after every firing....regardless of location. Learned the hard way, when I needed it, it jammed due to living in a high humidity area that caused the dirt to swell.

I drop the BCG in solvent after firing, do a quick spray down of the chamber and gas tube, then when I get back to the house lube everything up and I'm done.

After every shooting session, no exceptions. A clean gun is a happy gun, and happy guns work.
I use hoppes, rem oil, and good ole fashioned elbow grease.

I have found using the lubricant "Slide Glide" that I don't have to clean the gun every time I go to the range but then again with the ammo shortages I only shoot five to ten rounds. I figure if I can't hit where I want within the first five rounds then I'll have some real problems in in a real life threat situation.

I clean my home defense and carry guns every time I shoot them, but will let range or safe guns live with a simple wipe down every few hundred rounds.
