Default Hoppes is Great But...

Used Hoppes for 20 years, still do on some parts, but 6 months ago I bought a can of Gun Slick Foaming Bore Cleaner. This stuff is AWSOME! Comes with a 3" flexible clear rubber tube attached. Just jamb the tube into your chamber and push the button until you see with foam oozing out of the muzzle. The foam fills and saturates and lands and grooves in your barrel.

Wait 5 minutes, brush it 4 to 5 times, them a run a patch till it comes out clean.

$3.00 buck a can and I've gotten at least 20 clean barrels out it.

This is not "routine cleaning". This is the detail cleaning and inspection that we mandate on an annual basis. I do not clean the "routine" areas (like barrels). The gun must be "clean" when brought in for this detail cleaning.
I do the same thing. Unfortunately, It is usually around the same time as quals so some do not clean their guns. I have been using Gunzilla instead of Hoppe's and it seems to work better. While I don't spend a lot of time on the barrels, I do note the condition of the barrel and if it is not corrected by the next inspection there are consequences from the Chief.
