I use Butch's Bore Shine, followed by Butch's Gun Oil.

It's probably not the strongest out there but it works well for me. biggrin.gif

I use Sweets for the copper and Slip 2000 for the carbon. Followed by a light coat of oil.

I use the foam bore cleaner . I use a bore guied and after filling the bore with foam I insert a foam rubber ear plug in my bore guied and in the muzzel. That keeps the foam from getting anywhere that its not suppose to be . Works great give it a try

Butches or Sweets and Kroil cocktail 50%-50%. Does a great job, hard on carbon and copper, easy on barrels. smile.gif

Depends on what I am doing. Shooting my BR rifle, I use Butches Bore Shine and then Barnes CR-10. For cleaning my Varmint guns in the field I use Butches and then Wipe Out with the Accelerator. For all guns I use the Lucas bore guide so no solvent in the action or where it is not supposed to be.

50/50 - Butches/Kroil for most jobs.

for a rough bore that collects a lot of copper I'll get the Sweets out but only if I have to.
