hello everybody! I was wondering what material would be best to make my own patches for cleaning my gun out. I was thinking something like a thick cotton white cloth, but was wondering it the edges frey, will the little strings in the barrel pose any hazard? I would obviously look down the bore after cleaning to make sure I couldn't see any, but just like to be on the safe side. I dont really like the stuff I get from the stores, it seems to be too loose in the barrel and takes about 20 patches through my .223 before its sufficiantly clean. I would like to be able to add or take away material to make a snugger fit in the barrel and clean better.
Thanks for any input.
