General cleaning questions
1. Cleaning solvents. Can I use something other than Hoppes to clean with?
Seems like I am getting an allergy to it.
I have plenty of paint thinner around, would that hurt?
2. Oiling the barrel. I have not been oiling the barrel because 2 folks mentioned how excess oil can cause a bulge ahead of the bullet and distort it. So I didn't know if that meant no oil, or very light oil, or special oil or?
Have to agree with Rugergirl.......
Blue Wonder cleans incredibly well and does all the work by chemical action. Really good stuff.

Be sure and clean in a well ventalated area, or better yet, outside weather permitting.
