Does anyone know if the Hoppes 9mm pistol Bore Snake is long enough to go through the 9mm carbine? If not, does anyone have a suggestion for a rifle length Bore Snake?
I use a mesh laundry bag made for delicate washables. Just make sure you get one with a small enough mesh to contain the "head" of your snake!How do you clean them? I keep thinking I want to buy one but have not talked myself into it yet.
You are welcome.Thanks UncleRob for the mesh bag info on how to wash the snake, I have some handy odd size sweatshirt/teeshirt pieces that would work on also.
Don't spray anything on the boresnake! Just pull it thru a few times and you're done. Every now and then, I like to put some foaming bore cleaner in (from the breach) and let it sit for a while, then run a few patches thru it to get it good and clean. But for a quickie after a range trip, the boresnake is it!Hate to sound dumb, but explain the steps to use it, starting at open bag pull snake out.
I assume spray clean bore snake with Outers Nitro Solvent or other barrel cleaner, feed through barrel, start at chamber, repeat process three times? Spray each time?
Use a second clean bore snake with Gun oil to finish it off? Or patches? Or?
Inquiring minds want to know!
