    To avoid "pushing" the rod through the barrel, you can insert the rod from the muzzle end then attach the cleaning implement to the rod, then pull it out.

    Thats how I clean my shotguns and rifles.

    I can't see a patch or alum /brass rod or jag causing damage while cleaning other than minor scratches. I tend to clean my guns this way out of habit from cleaning precision target/competition guns.
    Some of this instruction may have come from military usage due to sectional steel cleaning rods.( this is just a guess however).
