I was out pdawgin and coyote gettin yesterday. Made a loop to Adobe Town , then on to the Powders. Was havin a great day just me and the dog and nothing for as far as you could see.. I get the idea that my 17 HMR needs some cleaning for some reason. So get my bore snake out and a bit of solvent. Pull the bore snake through and..... *&$**! It gets stuck.. WTF? I am sure it was the proper one cause I keep em in the correct package when not in use.. I look with a flash light and it is just in the chamber almost to the lands.. Gonna take the barrel off and see if I can snag it with a crochet needle.. I have been using bore snakes since they came out and no problems. Good thing I carry more than one weapon.
