Mind your crowns.90% of the time I use a bore snake.
But actually, I just did a medium-level Intarweb search,
and I can't find any photos of barrel crowns ruined by
radial boresnake yankage. A few YoutUbe videos (TL;DW)
that presumably spread Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt,
but no post-mortems that you'd expect if there really was
an epidemic of guys roaching their barrels right and left.
I'm actually surprised.
And yet how many muzzleloaders have to use patchesThe real reason the t-shirts become patches is Yankee Cheapness.
"Use it up, wear it out. Make it do, or do without."
that look like Maw sacrificed her bed linens for you?
Indeed; doesn't using the wrong caliber patch void the gun warranty?My question to you is why don't You use patches? They come in caliber specific sizes no cutting to size at all.
Some of you guys are wrapped waaaaaaaay too tight about cleaning guns.
Wait - you guys ____ ____ _______?What are you trying to absorb? Are we wiping vaginas or cleaning guns?
