Re: cleaning rodes

howdy!!!!

that in it self could certainly open up some debate.....

i have heard all kinds of stories about different materials.....one guy will state that the pro-shot diamond polished rods are the way to go because stuff will not get imbedded into them and get dragged back into the bore.

another feller will say dewey coated rods are best to protect the bore.....

beats the heck out of me. I use the pro-shot stainless and also use a guide with them (brass). I am not a benchrest shooter......and most likely they are the most paticular.....

i also prefer one-piece rods for handguns and for long guns.

if a bore guide or a chamber guide is used...i honestly think it makes not much difference about the rod material as it will not be coming into contact with the bore. i like the high polish stainless because they are easily cleaned and wipped down......they will not retain any chemicals or trash on them.

Re: cleaning rodes

i have an area shop that carries pro shot.......

most everything i use now is pro shot products such as brushes and patches as well. hate it when some outfits will not standardize on threads (in past) so i just stick with what i like across the board.

here they are at Natchez...... http://www.natchezss.com/brand.cfm?cont ... -Shot%2042

Re: cleaning rodes

Like Deputy, I use Pro-Shot one piece rods. Have used them for many, many years now, and am very happy with their performance.

Re: cleaning rodes

I have a rod for occasional scrubbing, but I'm like Snuffy. Most of the time I just run a bore snake through, and I run it dry.
