It's no wonder they put instructions on hammers these days.

Well when I unplugged the hole the foam expanded right up the the end of the chamber so there was foam all the way through....completely filled from front to end so there was no gap or bubbles. I did it twice and let it sit for a good 15 to 20 minutes each time. Are you going to tell me I did it wrong now because the gun wasn't up side down or side ways.lol. You guys are killing me, lol...give me a brake. I hope posters don't believe everything they read here.

WHAT??? You ate a bug Mack and got some on your shirt? You should never eat a big Mack without a napkin wrapped around it! What you ate it upside down and it tasted different? You can't do that because we don't and it's just wrong! You probably got gas and bubbles in your stomach because you ate it wrong...things can be done all different ways with the same results. Dave, to belittle is to be little. You must have got picked on a lot when you were a kid. I feel sorry for you. For some reason it seems you have to put posters down in a lot of your smart Allic replies. I guarantee you in real life you walk away from any confrontation. You are definitely the smartest guy you know. Once again this is Forum to ask questions and help posters when they answer questions. Not to run people down just because their views are diffent or they do something a different way. Really? We are running each other down on how to clean a barrel. It's time to grow up children and I shouldn't have stooped to your level but after a couple of smart Allic replies you get sick of them. It's not doing any good for the forum or helping the the posters with their questions.

Ha! Believe it or not, I've heard of guys using toothpaste as it is a mild abrasive.

I never thought of that. The abrasive in tooth paste is desicated... demasticated... domasious... (googled)ok, its diatomaceous earth. I wonder how hard it is on steel. I've got some super fine diatomaceous earth around from some farm use, it's about as fine as flour, I wonder how that would work if I mixed some Butch's with it to a paste like consistency and used that on a patch or brush?

I thought about giving Preparation H a try to clean my barrel. I read somewhere that it was good about getting crap out of tight holes.


Sorry.

Whoa, hoss. Always more than one way to skin a cat, if it works for you, carry on. No need for ruffled feathers.

It's easy to keep foam out of bolt guns using a bore guide and/or proper size tygon tubing to seal the breech and attach to can. Even the cheaper bore guides seal chamber sufficiently to prevent foam leakage into rifle action:


I like the Gunslick Foam as the can has a spout which slips into most bore guides snugly enough to prevent foam leakage.



Muzzle angled very slightly down insures no foam will back up and leak into action while soaking. A steady buildup of foam at muzzle insures no air pockets remain in the bore.



Oh, it's not necessary to keep the gun upside down unless you are cleaning a gas gun with the port located on bottom of bore. smile

Regards,
hm

Rusty,
did you know Prep H is a good toothpaste too?
It doesn’t get your teeth any whiter, but you can whistle a lot better.

Diatomaceous earth is in several bore cleaners. JB paste for one.

And also works well as an alternative to chemicals for insect control!

Cleaning rifle barrels is one area where shooters are learning fast. Old habits, wives tales, are being upgraded by this simple and very effective bore scope. This bore scope is almost a must for guys shooting over bore cartridges because of how bad they powder foul.

Lyman Bore scope-$199 from brownell's

https://www.brownells.com/gunsmith-tools...-prod81507.aspx

All I can say is that one picture is worth a thousand words.

Have you ever wondered how those guys that shoot the 338 Lapua and 50 bmg clean their rifles shooting from between 120-220g of powder per shell? You know that the powder fouling is unreal.

And all I can say if if you think that you have a clean barrel but wonder why your rifle is not shooting well then buy a bore scope then find out why. My crappy shooting guns were not anywhere near clean and my Lyman not only showed me where my barrel needed further cleaning it showed me what kind of fouling it was. You can have all the copper out of a barrel and still have it heavily fouled with carbon. Once your barrel is copper free and carbon free then and only then will it shoot those amazing groups again.
