    I recently Discovered Bore Tech's rifle cleaning products.
    I have a magnum rifle that the accuracy was dropping off slowly.
    I use always use Sweets 762, Hops copper remover and Barns copper remover also use regular Hops.
    After all of those used on this barrel and the patches coming out looking clean the next day my shipment of boretech products arrived.
    I ordered their bore guide and a custom Length cleaning rod so I don't have to remove my muzzle brake. While I was there eye balling their cleaning rods I noticed the cleaners they have. I decided to try them all and see what happens.
    I ordered the carbon remover,copper remover and the Eliminator.
    The above picture is what the carbon remover took out after using the rest of my cleaners and thinking it was clean.
    The above is after using the copper remover.

    The above after using the Eliminator cleaner.

    This stuff works awesome. And it is all non-toxic and American made.

    So afer all the cleaning report if the rifle has increased it's accuracy , or it's not the tool itself , but the tool user . ;)
    I know clean makes a huge difference for the smoothness & i Assumed !!! accuracy..

    Yea it went back to sub moa.
    When I finally realized something was wrong in the cleaning I was working up load developments for different bullets, and had nothing to refer to so I could see my accuracy loss. Util I went back to the load I sighted in with, then I could see it was the rifle and not the loads. It increased to a 2" group from a sub moa.

    When I attended the Glock Armorers course the instructor was very positive on Bore Tech and warned about not fully removing Hoppes 9.

    He does not as far as I know have an interest in Bore Tech or Hoppes it was one of those rambling off subject moments in a class where one thing lead to another and we were talking about bore cleaner so I bought a 16 oz bottle and have been pleased with it.

    Thank you for the post Quig. Bought the same three that you did and used them tonight. Amazing what it gets out when you think it is clean.

    Quig... Excess Carbon after Shooting, is an indication of incomplete Burning of the Propellant.... You might look at using a slightly FASTER Powder, so it completely burns, BEFORE the Projectile leaves the Barrel, and the Pressure Drops.... And the Gases cool....

    This a 300 ultra Mag pushing a 210 grain Berger, its overbore, you want to shoot the slowest powder you can to keep pressures down and get max accuracy/ velocity for long range shots.
