I do not like cleaning barrels. I do a lot of load workup and target shooting, so barrel cleaning is a given. Patches and various brushes are needed to get my bores clean. Recently I started using used dryer sheets, cut to size, placed over a regular patch and have reduced cleaning time to a few minutes. Used dryer sheets seem to be made of a woven slightly stiff fabric and when soaked with solvent remove the powder residue that often requires a bronze brush. I run a couple regular patches to remove the fluffy stuff, then a saturated patch with a dryer sheet is pushed back and forth a few times, then repeated. Stiff nylon or bronze brushes are no longer needed. Borescoping confirms my bored are clean.
