Were the ring bottoms aluminum or steel?

I used it to polish the bore on my CZ and I was still getting the stuff out of the barrell 2 months later. Using it very lightly for cleaning is probably OK. But using it heavy can cause problems

I use it in front of the chamber if a carbon ring starts to build; works great. A friend tried it on his "shot out" (yeah right) barrel and scored a 1597 out of 1600 at last month's prone match.

Mark and/or Que, what do you apply it with? I have tried a fairly tight mop on a pistol cleaning rod, so as not to go too far. But it seems like it is not very effective. For real lapping, I have used a bronze brush wrapped in cotton from a cotton ball to fill in all the space, and slathered up with bore paste.

But that rig needs to go all the way through, no backing up with the brush... Just wondering what you folks use. It is time to give all my bench rifles a good cleaning..

JB is like a hammer.....Claws facing you and swing careful.....good results :D

I know you directed your question to Mark & Que but I figured I'd answer anyway. You're welcome to ignore my response...my family does so I'm used to it. I use JB on a tight patch with a jag like the instructions say to. Seems to work pretty well.

Patrick, I never mean to leave you or anyone else out!! :o I just figured with as many rifles as Que handles he has probably done it wrong enough times to know what is right by now.... well, that's how I learn anyway!! And Mark just sounded like he does it a lot....

I use a mop, but I do not know how tight it is. And I did hear about a tight patch.. Not sure I understand, so I will ask more specifics...

I use pre-cut patches on a jag with a simple single point. They are not really all that tight. Do you just use double patches? or cut bigger ones?
I guess it is pretty obvious that in the Bench game, I do not clean these rifles too often!!! :o

But it is getting along about time to do it all again... and I want to polish this chamber area.....

Thanks to one and all, so glad I asked about JB ??

Just my 2 cents : A patch around a jag JB cut with Shooters Choise back and forth 7-10 pulls. Then push a patch on a jag with shooters till clean.

Thanks Again,
Don :D

I know there are a lot of different cleaning products and all that are marketed towards guns or are gun related.

I just didn't know where to add this so I figured I'd tag it onto here. there are 4 products I always keep handy when working in my shop.

Rem Oil
PB Blaster
Brake Parts Cleaner (Blue can found at WM)
Simple Green

Also around depending on what I am doing
Hopps
ATF F
WD-40
Oil 10 & 30 wt

Heck, guess I'll join the party too :). With any type of "paste", I'm always watchful that I'm applying it as evenly as possible, therefore, I'll use a bore mop in lieu of patches. Of the different brands of paste, I also will use IOSSO Bore Cleaner. Like a lot of folks, you kinda develope a second hand feel for what product you think will get the job done, without inadvertainly doing any permanent damage.
