    Didn't there used to be a bore cleaner called Redwine, or something like that?

    It was red and didn't smell like solvent.

    FYI,if you have the same problem I do buying small quantities of kerosese, the "Stoddard Solvent" mentioned in the formula can be obtained by buying a bottle of Kingsford Charcoal Lighter Fluid, which is nothing more than Stoddard Solvent.

    No, it came in a spray can and came with a red pull through bore cleaner and patches.

    It was a white can.

    There is?was a solvent called Quick Shot. It was the color of red wine. It came in a spray can with a cap at both ends. The bottom cap held a pull through cord with a rubber?synthetic cone at the end and patches.

    THANK YOU, I thought I was going crazy.

    Don't know why I thought it was called "redwine".

    Their Choke and Parts Cleaner works on choke tubes but at $38 for a pint can of it and a glass jar with a wood lid it's way too pricey for how it compares to Shooter's Choice or even Ed's Red. I have a pint from several years ago when it cost less than half what it does now and have never had problems soaking chokes in it in a jar with a metal lid.
