    I've tried a wide variety of things from Ed's Red (home made) to Shooter's Choice "Bore and Choke Cleaner" and "Bore Cleaner" to Break-Free "CLP" and on and on. Since I clean my bore after each day's shooting it's never very dirty. I run one of Rog-F's bore brushes though the bore to loosen the residue before I do a wet brushing (a patch around a stiff bore brush) with Ed's Red followed by a similar treatment with Shooter's Choice. Dry the bore and apply a coating of B-C's "Barricade" (formerly "Sheath") inside and out.

    I like KROIL for cleaning shotguns. I like to finish with a touch of Break Free.

    I'll share a process taught to me years ago by the gang at Marksman's coice.
    First, use a dry bore mop in and out four times.
    Second, spray with any of the good bore cleaners/plastic cutters mentioned above.I use Ed's Red.
    Third, push a good tight bore brush in and out four times,
    Finally, take a paper towel like Bounty. Fold lenghtwise twice and roll it into a "cigar" that will go into the chamber. Push it through the bore with a long 1/2 inch dowel. Repeat with solvent,(no brush)- the a rust prevent - like tri flo.Takes about five minutes.

    Ed's Red with a bronze bore brush, spun in the bore with an electric drill for about 20 seconds. Follow with dry patches wrapped around a wool mop until they come out fairly clean, then by a patch wetted with ER. If that one comes out clean, you're done. If it comes out dirty, repeat the whole process.
    Usually doesn't take more than two cycles.
