The patented design of the BoreSnake works by simply dropping the brass weighted end through the barrel and pulling the snake through the bore in the same direction that the bullet travels through.
As the snake passes through, it loosens large particles, then it removes any hard fouling and lead residue with the bronze brush portion, and the woven cotton floss follows up swabbing it all spotless with a cleaning area 160X larger than a standard patch.
Hoppe's BoreSnakes are machine washable allowing them to be used time and time again.
Cleaning your gun regularly and keeping it lubricated will help maintain the value and workability of your gun for years and Hoppe's has what you need!
Note: Hoppe's BoreSnake Bore Cleaner may be tight fitting when new. If difficult to pull through bore, first ensure that you have purchased the proper BoreSnake for your caliber and if so, then it may be easier to step on the exposed end of the bore cleaner and hold it while pulling the firearm.
