Lyman Bore scope-$199 from brownell's

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.



Just ordered this a few minutes ago. Add a brush and you can get $25 off and free shipping. Just another way to go farther down the rabbit hole. Should be interesting anyway.

[beeep], y'all are gonna cost me some more money. I have put off a bore scope for some time,but the more I read it may be more of a necessity than we want to think.

Has anyone used the Hoppes #9 foam? I am wondering if it would work well for the carbon aspect of cleaning after de-coppering with Wipe-Out.

I sure am liking Iosso paste on a brush after Wipe-Out patch-out to hit the carbon.

In all honesty I removed my action from my ruger RAR the other day after I sat in the rainy slush to give it a good oiling. I found some foam build up I missed on the underside of the action next to the trigger area. Gummy build up again. Won't come off with rem oil or my fingernail. Also most looked like it stained the blueing. I'll go invest in a rod and make sure my action us out of the stock when I use this stuff from now on so in case I get a little sloppy I can clean it off before it dries. I didn't try gun scrubber on it yet but I'm sure it will take it off pretty easy. I'll have to see if stained the bluing when I get it off

I've been using gunslick and it seems to do a good job, but I don't have a bore scope.

I seem to be in the minority, but I hate the spray foam, at least the one I've tried. Gunslick I think. I just seem to get it everywhere. It does seem to do ok on copper at least, but no better than Eliminator. Actually copper is a very small problem in most of my barrels, it's the carbon that gets baked on that can be the tough one. Eliminator carbon remover, brushes, and if all else fails jb bore bright on a patch around a brush seems to work.

Looks like Midway has discontinued Gunslick and price has gone up considerably most places.

Academy still lists @ $12 something a can...about what I paid last time.

Sportsmans had a ton of it yesterday. I did pick up soem Tactical Advantage to test how the Gunslick was doing. I found that the Gnslick had done a great job on my 22-NXS with the TA showing zero copper or powder fouling. The patches on them came out lily white. This was what I had seen before using a test run of SWEETS after using the GFBC.

Tactical Advantage on a stiff blue Iosso nylon brush works better than anything I've used on carbon and also takes out any copper if left a while to soak. Apply w/wet brush and make 6-8 passes through bore and let sit (overnight safe and most efficient).

amazon has it but it's $16.50

Midsouth is $11.35 but you have to pay shipping. Good addon to other stuff:

Thnaks for the tip. I did leave it in over night so I am happy. I'm working over my copper pig AR right now as I type and it is just about done with much improvement.
