hoppes boresnake

I first bought one for my shotgun to use in the field, now I own one for every caliber gun I own, even my pistols. I love it, they work better than most of the screw together rods and patches. I would highly recomend them to anyone.

Excellent quick cleaning tool for the field or when you just want a quick pass through to make sure all the lube is out. Thumbs up

They work great but remember to clean regularly or you are passing grit back through the bore.My 2 cents.
F.K.

Ditto to what everyone else has said -- great for field cleaning, and for running through the bore periodically to prevent corrosion on extended trips in inclement weather.

I personally don't like the snakes for bores. Just a preference. I like using a good old brass rod and bronze bore brush with some Hoppes No.9 in the bore. I think the rod and brush give you a bit more authority in cleaning stubborn areas.
