I purchased a bore snake to clean my 995 today and followed the directions to a T.

Curious. Should one dab some Hoppes #9 or gun oil on the snake before pulling it through?

I pulled it through twice and the bore looked bright and clean without any additive. Just curious.

I apply a little #9 to the bristle portion only, although the bore snake directions do not mention anything about having to apply any cleaner/oil to the snake. Bore comes out squeaky clean! Then I run a patch with a bit of oil on it.

It's an all in one deal, apply cleaner to the bristles and oil to the slightly wide and flat part above the bristles.

I use them in various calibers when at the range and doing alot of shooting. Cleaner and a drop of oil on boresnake and a few drops of oil in gun and all good to go some more.

I still clean properly when I get home.
