Butch’s Bore Solvent

10 best Precision Rifle cleaning kit products

Butch’s should be your primary gun cleaning solvent, you use this first before getting to the other cleaning agents on the list. It is a non-abrasive solvent that loosens and removes powder and copper residue from the barrel with relative ease. When you are done you can just patch it out and the rifle is ready to go. If you still have copper residue in the barrel use J-B next, if it is really fouled use CR-10.

Barnes Bullets Cr-10 Bore Cleaner

10 best Precision Rifle cleaning kit products

CR-10 is used for removing copper fouling from a barrel. It is Ammonia based and really stinks but there is nothing, and I mean nothing that works as well as it does for removing copper fouling. You also need to be careful and ensure you do not get it on anything plastic or the finish of the rifle stock as it will damage them, it is that strong. Also do not leave it in the barrel for more than 15 minutes as it has the potential to etch the barrel if left for extended periods of time. Barnes CR-10 is made in the USA

If you shoot a rifle up to 26 caliber this is the rod you need. Dewey rods are coated to protect the rifle and bore from scratches and damage. If you have an un-coated rod do not use it!

All sorts of bad news for accuracy. Use Dewey, they are great and you don’t hurt anything with them and they fit nicely in the dragbag storage slot. Dewey rods are also made in the USA.
