This BoreSnake is ideal for firearms chambered for .22” to .225” diameter bullets, such as 22 LR and 223 Rem. The BoreSnake’s weighted end makes it a snap to feed through any firearm, and as you floss it back and forth through the barrel its durable bronze brush will gingerly clean out any residues that have accumulated in there. A dab of Hoppe’s No. 9 or cleaning oil on the BoreSnake is super effective — the cord has a surface area 160 times greater in size than that of a conventional cotton swab!
Once your firearm is clean, making your BoreSnake clean is as simple as throwing it in the washing machine. You’d be well-advised to wash your BoreSnake independently, however, as its bronze brush isn’t going to do your fancy dress socks any favors!
