    Dont forget to listen to your patches. They tell a story too.

    Say a guy isn't a benchrest shooter and wasn't going to clean his rifle for a day or two. Would a shortcut be to soak a bore mop with - "what's a good cleaner that will not etch a barrel but will loosen a carbon ring"???, leaving the mop and cleaner in the bore where the carbon ring would normally form.

    Just wondering???

    Boretech C4 Carbon Remover and CLR have both worked for me. CLR is pretty aggressive stuff though, I wouldn't leave it too long. I think you could soak in Boretech overnight and it wouldn't harm the barrel.

    Both work pretty good at softening baked on carbon, have used them to clean muzzle brakes also.
