    Has anyone tried Shooter's Choice Shotgun and Choke Tube Cleaner? All the reviews I've read said I can clean all the black gunk out of my barrel in half the time. I'm not the most diligent gun cleaner out there and it's always an extended period of time and rounds at the trap range between cleanings. If anyone has tried this, please give me your opinion.

    Shooter's Choice works but you have to be diligent about re-oiling anything it touches to prevent rust.

    "Ed's Red" works just as well, is cheaper to mix up and it oils as it cleans.

    I like it, just ordered some today from Brownells. Never had a problem with rust, as I apply a light coat of oil to every firearm I clean regardless of the cleaning solution I am using at the time.

    It gets rid of plastic wad fouling with minimal effort.

    I use it and it works. I also like their FP-10 oil. Great cleaner and mid-weight lube. Kimber recommends it for their pistols, that's where I first heard of Shooter's Choice. I now use it on all my weapons. After everything is clean and before put into storage, I lightly spray and wipe with their Rust Prevent. They also make a grease in a syringe but I haven't tried that yet.

    I've noticed there are a few different recipes for "Ed's Red." Is there one that is considered the best or "new and improved"?

    Equal parts of <UL><LI>Dexron ATF<LI>K-1 kerosene<LI>Odorless mineral spirits (or Stoddard solvent [Kingsford Charcoal lighter fluid])<LI>acetone.</ul>

    That having been said, I use 10 oz. of the first 3 and 2 oz. of the last. The purpose for the acetone is to melt plastic residue in the barrel but I get very little of that.

    I mix and store it in quart can that once held mineral spirits and transfer about 6 oz at a time into a glass jar with a metal lid to dip patches into.

    I have been using Shooters Choice for 4-5 years, use a 10ga brass brush, run it about 10 times throrgh the barell,whip clean,don't even re-oil,unless storing for more than 2 days. Works great as does all Shooters Choise products. Jim R

    I discovered a few years ago and that is all I've used since.

    It really makes short work of any plastic in your barrel.

    Great product and I highly recommend it!

    I'm with unknown, I use Ed's Red. I have used shooters choice and it did work well. I clean my guns after every shoot and i can make alot of ed's red cheaper than the cost of shooters choice. There is a utube video that i have. I'll try to post the link. I'm not real good at this so I hope it works.

    I store mine in a mason jar with aluminum foil over the top and then screw the lid on. If you don't it will eat the rubber seal on the lid. There is one caution, don't get it on your wood, it will eat the finish, just use it for cleaning the inside of the barrel. Rick
