I just started shooting "friendly-competitive" at the gun club with my 10/22. The experienced shooters do nothing more than run a boresnake through the barrel every 100-200 rounds or so. The maker of my barrel says to use solvents only rarely when cleaning the bore and they recommend just a boresnake as well for the most part. This goes against everything I've ever been told, and I've been shooting most of my life. Also, on the semi-autos like my 10/22 and my Browning take-down, if you were to use a brush and cleaning rod, you would have to go at it from the muzzle end, which doesn't seem right to me. How do y'all do it?
