    What cleaner do you use to get your bore spotless? Often, after shooting some of my reloads, there is a buildup of something close to the chamber in my barrels. It takes me forever to get them clean. Break-Clean, Ballistol, Break Free, RemOil, they all don't do a great job when it comes to removing stuck on materials in the barrels. I believe the buildup to be plastic because it does not do it as bad with new shells.

    So, I need some help to find the best bore cleaner so I don't have to spend 20 minutes scrubbing my barrels.

    Thanks.

    Ed's Red Bore Cleaner... make it yourself:<UL><LI>1 part Dexron Automatic Transmission Fluid
    <LI>1 part K-1 kerosene<LI>1 part Kingsford charcoal lighter fluid (or odorless mineral spirits will work)
    <LI>1 part acetone (can use less, speeds the removal of plastic deposits)</UL>

    Keep it in a metal can.

    I agree with WPT. In my limited experience, there is nothing better than Clenzoil. I've cleaned my bore with Hoppes, and then ran a patch through it with Clenzoil. I couldn't believe how much more gunk came off with the Clenzoil.

    For plastic buildup acetone is a good solvent but keep it off your stock.

    Getting anal about a clean bore is - well - anal. It just gets dirty again with the first shot.

    If you are getting a lot of plastic buildup, try either AA, Federal or Downrange wads. I had problems with Claybusters in one gun and stopped using them. I have very little plastic buildup with wads listed.

    You can try polishing the bores but I have never done that.

    Another vote for Clenzoil. It is all I ever use anymore.
