    Paint thinner works well.

    PS- I mean thinner for oil based paint, the thinner for latex paint isn't too good.

    Shooter's Choice Shotgun and choke cleaner. Works well without damaging your finishes.

    Slip 2000. Drop 'em in the bottle and pull them out the next day. Run a brush and patch through 'em and you will think they are new out of the box.

    Slip 2000 choke tube cleaner is by far the best. I've tried them all including Shooters Choice and all paint thinners. I gave everything else away after using Slip 2000.

    Agree with Shooters choice choke cleaner, spray it in, coat the entire choke,roll it to cover all surface, then lay it down on its side for 5 minutes, then use your bore brush, keeping it over a trash barrel, the stuff will drool out like snot......use a rubber glove to keep the stuff off your hands.
