    I would use boretech, i think it is a better clean let than anything I have used. Though you can’t use any brass with it. In addition I use some lucas bore solvent as a prep for the boretech.

    I used a lucas bore solvent, wet patch one pass. Wet a bronze brush with lucas, 10 passes through the bore. And dry patches until it is dry.

    Then I use the boretech, following the directions on the bottle. And I find 1-2 cycles and I am done.

    A brand new Bergara B14 HMR 6.5 PRC that took 4 rounds of cleaning to get a patch that was not black. I always clean a barrel before shooting it but this is the dirtiest barrel I’ve ever encountered. It was visibly dirty before I started but I’m shocked at how dirty it was.

    My b14 SP was like that but probably wasn’t as bad.. after seeing the first patch after boretech soak, I soaked again and used a nylon bore brush which most likely helped to speed up the process.

    When I broke in the barrel on my savage 110 it was like that after every cycle. 1 round, wet patch, brush, 2 dry patch, copper solvent patch, scrub, 2 dry patch, lightly oiled patch. After the first patch of solvent every time is was exceedingly dirty. Just running some plinkers with IMR4064. When I began to progress further through the break-in where I’d fire 5 rounds groups instead of singles between cleanings they would be much less dirty. Very strange. Then I took it out the other weekend and put 40 rounds of a ladder test with Varget and IMR4064 (20 of each.) It wasn’t nearly that dirty when I cleaned it that night. I think maybe more rounds clean out some fouling as they go.

    I had two Bergaras. Both were pretty fouled from test firing.

    It is a pretty solid setup, the barrels are great. Clean it. Let the solvent soak and do it’s work.

    I love butches bore shine for deep cleaning.

    For non deep cleaning. Lucas extreme gun solvent is my go to, or Pro Shot bore solvent.

    Its a new barrel its gonna need cleaning. As well as a proper breaking in. Shoot 1 round and clean for 20 shots, shoot 3 rounds and clean 60. You will notice how much smoother the bore gets.

    Use clr next time, soak a patch, pass it though, let it sit for like 10 mins and clean as normal

    They test fire them at the factory

    Pretty much always. Cleaning up after the factory takes the longest in my opinion. Their machining oil always seems pretty thick

    Was it just lapping compound that someone missed cleaning at the factory?
