What Is A Bore Snake?
bore snake is simply a long piece of specially designed
"cleaning floss" that is pulled through the barrel of a gun. It
is more effective than
cleaning patches because the entire
length of the snake rubs along and cleans the inside of the
barrel as compared to the small surface area of a cleaning
patch. It is said a boresnake has 160 times more cleaning area
than a standard patch. In addition to that, it contains an
integrated bronze brush to loosen fouling and lead deposits.
Some people wet the front portion of the boresnake with cleaning
solvent to aid in the loosening and removal of carbon buildup.
Others soak the end with
to coat the inside of the barrel after it is cleaned. One pass
with a boresnake is sufficient to clean most barrels. If it gets dirty, just wash it and reuse it. Boresnakes are
made of woven cotton and are very durable.
