You CAN wash them in a washing machine, but it's advised against doing so with normal laundry. I through mine in with a seperate load of other rags. You can also wash them by hand.

You can try here...

http://www.amazon.com/Hoppes-24011-BoreSnake-Centerfire-Rimfire/dp/B0000C50K3/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1333183361&sr=8-1

Or here...

OR... you can get a non waxed cotton shoe string that can fit into a .22lr and use that. May not work as great, but it's cost effective.

The boresnake or shoe string?

The boresnake shouldn't, otherwise most people wouldn't buy them.

Not sure about a shoe string, but I don't think so - not 100% certain of this, maybe someone else can answer it.

Still need o buy patches or make them. Saw someone who bought a couple of yards of GOOD diaper cotton, ran it threw a wahing machine and uses it for all his patches. Bore snakes are good range cleaners but should be just until you have time to clean properly. I store them in a clear plastic WIDE MOUTH water bottle (Keep the smell out of the range bag.

Default Lead Removal

No cleaning solvent I've used, and I've used a few, has, in use, justified the claim that it removes lead, or even helps much.

Do any of you know of a solvent that does actually loosen lead?

And what do the rest of you do to get the tenacious stuff out of your barrels?

Have you tried brown Vinegar straight?

Have you tried Janitor's Ammonia with @ 1 teaspoon of Dawn and 2 parts

water?

The old Hoppe's #9 with nitro-benzene worked well as a "marinading" medium for the barrel. Currently, Hoppe's #9 and Kroil will tend to loosen it a bit.
For my purposes, I am thrilled with the Foul-Out III--gets all the lead out in 30 minutes or less with no work--and my guns have generally fired at least 5000 rounds without cleaning and there is very little leading (I do watch with new bullets/alloys).

The best and easy way to REDUCE the lead is at the end of a day at the range FIRE JACKETED ROUNDS. One or two should do the trick. If I start getting a build up of lead I will shoot a couple of jacketed bullets and the copper round will push out a whole lot of the lead build up.

Default Lead

BobandWife,
I recently read about firing a copper jacketed bullet to clear out the lead. It doesn't. All the jacketed bullet does is to compress the lead into the grooves, It will build up to the point that you don't have grooves anymore.
