    Looking for a Heavy Duty 70mm Bore Brush.

    A number of years back a Fellow at the Penn. & Jersey State Shoots sold a Heavy Duty 70mm Bore Brush.

    Any one know how I may acquire a couple of these brushes?

    Thanks for your help

    Are you sure you want that size? 75mm is almost 3 inches in diameter. Are you cleaning sewer pipes?

    I generally use a 10ga bore brush for heavy 12ga barrel cleaning. I just buy the bronze ones so they won't hurt my barrels any. The 10ga brush is also great for cleaning out the chamber area. I use a standard 12ga brush on choke tubes.

    Buster 25,

    Not quite sure which style of brush you're looking for. They make several different ones and I hear good things about the "tornado" style but haven't tried one yet. I'm waiting to wear out my existing brushes before trying something else.

    The man you are looking for is Rodge-F. He sold a 20mm brush for what you want to do. Put his name in Google. He is usually at the larger east coast shoots.

    The 20mm brush that Mike mentioned is also available from Brownell's.

    I use it dry chucked in my drill and run 'er back and forth a few times. Then the wooly stick with the oil bob coated with Slip 2000.

    70mm is 2 3/4" (chamber length) if that helps.
