Cheap place to buy some good quality ones?
Alrighty then....so you guys use the bore snake to replace the rod and patches to clean the barrel?
How many cleanings are you guys getting out of boresnakes?
Always used patches.
I dont think you ever really have to replace them...... I haven't. I was told to soak one end with cleaning solution run the snake through a few times and when I look down the barrel its clean. Maybe im doing it wrong.
Bore snakes suck
I buy bulk 12 ga patches and just rip them in half or quarters for smaller guns
They last forever, just clean them with soapy water every now and then.
I only use a bore snake on my sig
I'll run a boresnake through at the end of a range session and then I don't feel bad if I don't get around to cleaning my guns, but every once in a while I'll get out a bunch of guns and clean them properly. Bore brushes and patches.....
I buy mine at Wal Mart or Academy. I don't own Bore snakes, I would rather have patches that I can toss after they are dirty.
i just use my .308 rifle patches which i order from brownells.
boresnakes aren't bad for just cleaning the bore and keeping it from being too crappy but i can run a snake down my AR all day and the first patch after an actual brush getting pushed through with a rod will come out with 11ty times more shit on it than the bore snake ever got off, it does a crappy job of doing a detail clean. you'll never get all the copper or even powder out with a boresnake.
for my G19, i just use the brush that came with it, i ream the fuck out of the barrel and then dry/lube with the .308 patches.
Reuse toilet paper also?
this isn't a legit argument since a boresnake can be easily cleaned in a washer or dishwasher, i've done both.
the more appropriate argument is that they do a shit job of actually removing any fouling to begin with, which is true.
Yep Baby Wipes > Toilet Paper
Also what I do.
