I have read a bunch of good things in several forums about Patchout and Wipeout for tuff fouling. My new .300 RUM shoots good and fouls bad.
Where can you get it in the Anchorage area?
I would like something I can take to the range and use easily. The no brush things seems to good to be true, but I can't knock it if I don't try it.
Several threads say that 7.62 works real good too, but not as slick as the Wipeout.
I have tried a few other products and can give a biased opinion.
Birchwood Casey bore foam: Messy, stinky, clings to everything, not effective
All Hoppes products (elite gun cleaner, Elite copper remover, plain old solvent and black powder remover): Not stinky or too messy (except the nitro solvent but by now that smell is so common that I don't mind it), more effective but I can still see shiny copper marks down the lands.
Knock out bore foam: Easy to use but it spits foam out the muzzle and sprays the walls. Not an issue in the garage, but is in the kitchen. More copper showed on the patches with this stuff than anything else. I used it 4 times until there was no more copper on the patches. However, I can still SEE copper between the lands so I know it is still fouled.
I tried some other foam stuff but it did not even clean the powder residue, let alone the copper.
Long and short, I need the REALLY good stuff. What ever that is.
