    Tried a bore snake for the first time.

    I’ve been cleaning my 336 through the chamber with a cleaning rod since I bought it in 2013. Was in Cabelas looking at a bore snake and decided to try it. I found out it’s so much quicker and easier to use. I should of bought one years ago.

    It was $8.99

    +1 for bore snakes. Im a believer, I keep one for every caliber I own now. for "dirty" guns, I bring one with me to the range for spot cleanings from time to time.

    I have been a fan of the bore snake for the last 17 years. It cannot be beat for quick cleaning if the bore, but it does not do as good of a job as the old rod and brush.

    The Gene Pool is in need of a lot of Chlorine!

    Better yet, drain the entire pool!

    And... I do like to pull the bolt, and clean all that up as well, not just the bore.

    But yes, a bore-snake is a great device, and a real help in keeping the rifle clean, quickly.

    The Otis cleaning kits are nice too. You can clean in the traditional way but use a cable from the breech instead of a rod.

    I have one with the ring it goes in that acts as a pulling handle and love it. Here is a a link that shows it. I think they sell them at Amazon also.

    This bore snake has a brass brush. Do most bore snakes have a brush?

    Thanks for posting it.

    Yes they do. My 30 caliber and 12 gauge bore snakes both have the brass brushes.

    Absolutely, it does not take much to pull the bolt.
