Out of curiosity, and the possibility to learn a little, I'm asking "What is your cleaning routine?" I'd like to know how you clean your barrel: the intervals, the chemicals, the no. of patches, etc. For those of you who shoot moly coated bullets, how has your routine changed, or has it? You're welcome to answer what you feel is the ideal break-in proedure, but I'm really interested in the post break-in cleaning routine. Thanks.

I shoot no moly in any of my rifles.

I use Mili-tech1 as a lubricant, protechtant and it seems to aid in clean-up.

I use shooters choice solvent for both copper and powder fouling. I run a wet patch through the barrel (and guide rod to protect the trigger and chamber area from getting sopping wet) with a single piece dewey rod. I let the solvent sit in the barrel while I clean and wipe down the bolt and other parts. When that is done, I dry patch the barrel. If the fouling is heavy due to a long day at the range - say 60 shots or more - I will run a solvent soaked bronze brush through the barrel from chamber to muzzle one no more than two times. Generally the combination of soaking and one or two strokes with a bronze brush and the bareel will be be virtually spotless with a few dry patches. When this process is complete, I reapply teh Mili-tech1 lubricant / protectant.

I use ACCUBORE cleaner about even 50 rounds.....sometimes 25 is I fell motivated. Run as many through as it takes to clean the barrel... then a couple dry ones and thats all.

i shoot moly coated bullets in most of my rifles, when i clean them it's usually just a dry patch through the bore and a drop of clp on the bolt, the few rifles that i don't shoot moly'd bullets in i clean with a bore snake and clp at least once a month regardless if i shot 10 or 100 rounds in it.

dont have any set routine
i just go shoot then get the rifles hoem from the range adn clean them weather 50 rounds or 500 rounds were fired
as far as how many cleaning patches i use: as many as it takes to get the rifle clean enough
then get the rest of the gun spotless to the best of my ability
