    You'll get a lot opinions on this subject, so here goes: Bore Tech and Dewey for cleaning rods. Bore Tech "Proof Positive" for stab jags when used with copper solvents, otherwise plain brass jags. Sinclair for brush's. Sinclair and Montana Extreme for 100% cotton flannel cleaning patch's. You'll get a lot of good suggestions, so consider them all.

    I love my Bore-Tech cleaning rods with the proof positive jags, Sinclair brushes, and Pro Shot cleaning patches. Solvents -they all work decent, some better than others. Everyone has their favorite.

    Sinclair would be a great one stop shop for all your needs.

    +4 for Bore-Tech rods. Love the handles, they spin forever.

    I use the same materials as Hillbilly. I don't brush anymore - haven't found the need with Bore Tech. I make sure to shoot the foam down the bore immediately after I finish firing for the day, when the barrel is still warm (not hot!). Then I let it soak a few hours then push out the bad stuff with a few patches. If it looks like more fouling exists then I'll shoot more foam down the barrel and let that sit a few hours, then push it out. By then I'm usually clean enough. I use those good coated straight Dewey rods with Sinclair bore guides. The key is be patient and allow time for the Bore Tech to work its magic.

    Don't forget the bore guide with the proper o-ring intact.....especially if you opt for those foaming cleaners......they can play real havoc on your trigger.

    Good point we have all overlooked. A great bore guide will only help a great rod. That's why I use Mike Lucas bore guides for every gun I shoot.

    I wish someone made better bronze brushes. I have used Sinclair, ProShot, Dewey, and they all loose the brush pieces well before they wear out.

    Try some Otis brushes. They are shorter than normal, run a little bigger than normal, but they last as well as any others and do a good job. As with any brush, if you use them with a copper solvent they are going to degrade faster even when you rinse them off.

    Bore Tech rods if you want coated...Ivy stainless steel may make the best uncoated rods available. Pro shot patches. Bore tech jags for spear type otherwise I like Parker Hale type and wrap the patch.

    Good quality two piece bore guide such as a Lucas or those made by Dave Halblom.

    Rods-

    Of the three that I have, Ivy, Dewey and Tipton, I found the Ivy Stainless steel to be the best for me. Make 1000% sure you have a top shelf bore guide and the jag will never hit the bore.
