I grew up using Hoppes #9 with a cleaning rod, patches, brush, and more patches. Would let guns soak for hours, reclean, soak some more, maybe even overnight, and clean with Hoppes #9 again. Always left the bore wet with Hoppes when a gun was stored.

See where today Hoppes is available in a spray can.

Is the spray can Hoppes the same stuff as the original #9 ?

Here are the "composition" sections of the MSDS sheets for each:
<center>Liquid

Aerosol

</center>

Looks like they added acetone, removed about ½ of the alcohol, removed the kerosene and replaced it with some coal oil, added propane for propellant, red dye 164 for color and acknowledged the stray ethylbenezene impurities in the xylene.

Ok, amyl acetate AND citroella... gotta have both for those who want to use #9 as a cologne... you smell like a fruit (smirk!) that repels its own flies.
