Since hunting season is winding down i figured this would be a good topic. There are thousands of opinions on gun cleaning and maintenance particularly on the inside of barrels. I have done miles and miles of reading on this topic and it still seems to me opinions vary all over the place. With that being said i would like to hear how my fellow Louisiana hunters clean their rifle bores. Most of the reading i have been doing is writen by competition shooters who chew through plenty of rounds. I am only concerned about hunting rifles that may never see 50 rounds fired per year. I am also only concerned about the bore and not the action/exterior/wood etc. With that being said, how often do you guys clean your bores and do you use bore guides with brushes and solvents frequently or do you just pass a bore snake through once in a while and call it a day?
