I feel like a moron - Why does my AR's cleaning kit have 2 bore brushes?
I cannot believe I don't know the answer to this. My new AR came with a cleaning kit, containing two different sized bore brushes. One is obviously .223 sized, and the other one is larger (maybe ~.30) and has a softer, gray, and even larger brush on the back.
Just like this cleaning kit --> http://www.cjweapons.com/aspcart45/i..._nylon_kit.jpg
My operator's manual is silent on this. It simply says to run the brush down the barrel, just like I do on my pistol. But it doesn't specify which brush. I assume the larger brush is used to clean the chamber, before it necks down into the bore.
My question is this: How do I do it? Will the larger brush fit down the bore after it scrubs the chamber? Am I totally missing something here? (probably the case). I'm gonna go break in my new rifle tomorrow morning. Help a guy out in his moment of brain fart. :blink:
