Hoppe Bore Snake - color vs caliber?
Does anyone have a listing of the color of the bore snake vs the caliber of the gun it is for? I love these things and have a number of them, but I think I have my 50 cal black power snake mis-marked. The Hoppe web site justs list the part number by caliber.

I don't have a listing, but by Hoppe bore snakes have caliber pressed into the brass weight at the end of the pull string.

Yea, the caliber is there, but they are not always easy to read. I'd be REAL hard pressed to tell you which one says 20 and which one says 50 (ie 20 Gauge and 50 cal)
My 50 cal is charcoal and light steel blue.
I keep mine in little ziplock baggies with the caliber marked on the bag with a sharpie.
A clip is not a magazine, a mag is not a clip.
Neither is a grip a stock, and "stock" does not mean grip.
A bullet is not a cartridge, nor is the converse true.
Folks should be more careful when they use the words they do.
A revolver has a cylinder, but only one you see,
and cylinders have chambers, five or six most commonly.
I do not wish to nitpick, but improvement would be seen,
if we could bring ourselves to say exactly what we mean.
