This is a topic that I do not see come up a lot. So I was wondering how you clean your bolt action rifles? I'm in the process of changing how I clean my rifle. I used to run a Hoppes soaked patch threw the bore and let it sit for a few minutes the use a bronze brush to scrub it out then 5 dry patches on a jag to get that crud out. Then I would switch to Hoppes #9 copper solvent and run a patch with that and let it soak for 15 to 30 minutes then 5 dry patches to clean that out if the 5th patch was still showing signs of blue (Sign of copper still in the bore) I would repeate the copper solvent. Then after 5 more dry patches I would use the gunslick foaming bore cleaner for 30 minutes to 1 hour. And clean it out with 5 patches of Hoppes #9 then 5 dry patches This a patch with gunscrubber or break clean of eather to dry out the bore then a patch with oil and call it good. Recently I switched to not using a bronze brush at all. Then I just hoppes #9 the bore and let it sit then with a jag I run 5 to 10 patches then I switch to the hoppes #9 copper solvent and let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes. 5 to 10 dry patches then a dose of Gunslick foaming bore cleaner for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Then I go back to the Hoppen #9 copper solvent to clean that out. Then I run a patch with copper solvent and let it sit to see if there is any more left if next patches show signs of copper it is back to the foaming bore cleaner. I did this to my 223 last night and the last patch showed just a tiny touch of solvent on the patch. I then did the one patch of gun scrubber down and nothing on it as well so I oiled it lightly and called it good. Tonight is the 308. It has a stainless steel barrel and we will see how the new process works. In talking to many of the varmint and bench rest guys they say to never ever ever touch a stainless steel bore with a bronze brush and only once in a while use a nylon brush. So lets hear your cleaning method for the barrel.
