Back in the day when my dad taught me to shoot and clean guns, about all we had was the Hoppes kit. it did the job, but these days there are all these options.
So, I picked up a bore snake. It looks great, but how does one use it? Do you use it dry or wet (with cleaning fluid). Once the snake is dirty, how do you clean it?
Or maybe it's just easier to answer, how does the snake fit in your cleaning program?
I have one for my Remington .22 and one for my 870 Express.
