What is the best way that you have found to deep clean old bores, like in a mosin? I've heard shoot it, immediately clean it when its hot, shoot, clean, over and over as hot cleans easiest... does this seem right or is there a deep clean product out there?

+2 on the Gunslick Foaming Bore Cleaner. On the largest variety of rifles, for me this has provided the best results with the least effort. I wish it could be used on semi-autos without removing the barrel. It's not the only cleaner I use, but it's the one I use most. It will even remove the burnt camel dung left behind by POF .303.

IMHO the only sure way to "deep clean" the bores of some of the mil-surp rifles we aquire is to invest alot of time and effort. Ive done alot of these rifles and have yet to find a single product that will absolutely ensure that, after using it, you will have "deep cleaned" it.

Ive used Ed's Red, Hoppes 9, Butches Products, Sweets, boiling soap and water , carb cleaner, WD-40, Mineral spirts and others plus a EBC and still end up spending alot of time and effort to "deep clean" all of the mil-surps I buy.

Why go thru the effort you may ask? Because I want to know that is as clean as it possibly can be when I start shooting the gun.

Waste of time you may say. Maybe. But others may say shooting guns is a waste of time.

Its a hobby and I'll devote time to it.

in just about 90% of cases deep cleaning a milsurp bore is time wasted. +1 on the foam, i use it. i run a few patches to get out as much carbon out then do about 3-4 foam applications then run some wet and dry patches till they come out grey. doesnt matter if its hot or not. if you shoot corrosive ppl suggest hot water as it flash dries and wont stay anywhere and rust if you dont get it dry all the way

I bought one can of the foaming bore cleaners. It wasn't "Gunslick" and I can't recall which one it was, but I do remember that it took the skin off my finger tips. It sure did a good job of cleaning the gun though. :D

Make a electronic bore cleaner.

Dont be supprised you you never get a clean patch out of your Mosin. It can be as shiney as a mirror and pass a black patch every day for years. 100% normal.

After you use the foaming cleaner or hoppes or whatever. Dry patch then take some "never dull" from an automotive store. It's to polishing aluminum wheels. Use your factory cleaning rod because they are usually stainless and stonger. Work it back and forth in the bore. Change cotton pieces every 4-5 strokes. You'll be amazed at what it will bring out after all the bore cleaners. Takes a lot of elbow grease. But I guaranty you'll see an improvement.

I'll chime in with vote for Dewey carbon fiber one piece cleaning rods. One long .22 rod and a long .30 will cover about everything we shoot cleaning from the chamber end.
