.223 Cleaning

Recommended Posts

I’ve priced up a 1 piece Dewey rod, jag and brush. Plus a bore guide for my new Tikka. 

Do I need to use square or round patches for Dewey jags? 
 

I’ve also seen people using like a fibre pellet to push up the bore. Are these a useful addition to your cleaning kit? 
 

I’ve been looking at the boretech solvents but a bit lost as to what I need.

people still seem to reference wipe out, any good?

Square 1 1/4 or round are fine. As for copper solvent, its like aftershave, we all have our favourites.

Do a bit of searching on the net, then make your decision.

No, having barrels that dont pick up copper i just use a couple of patches with some spit on. 

 

 

I use foam, then if required Butchers, then if its still bad Sweets. to be honest the 17 and 2 re-barreled hardly pick up any copper.
