Hello. Besides the rod (Tipton), bore guide (Lucas), solvents, patches, and bristle brush what else am I gonna need to clean my new rifle? What's the best lubricant for the bolt? This is my first rifle, well first gun too for that matter, so I don't want to screw anything up. I'd rather spend a little extra time and money doing it right than wasting time and money fixing a stupid mistake. I'm gonna follow a break-in procedure for the barrel even though I've read it isn't necessary.
This is a dumb question but: the solvents I think I may use are "Sweets" and "Hoppes"; and I think that they are for getting the copper out of the bore. The ammo I'll most likely be using is Nosler Partitions. So are those the right solvents for the job or am I looking at the wrong stuff?
What kind of bristle brush? Brass?
Forgive my ignorance.
