    not trying to start a fight, I just want to know, I discarded all my really old partial bottles so I am going to buy one bottle and use it for everything.

    thanks for the input

    I have used almost all of them (a solvent junkie of sorts). Currently I use Butch's first, and if I am at 200 shots I follow it with Bore Tech Eliminator. I did a trail since I was using Bore Tech Copper Remover followed by Bore Tech Carbon Remover, and I found that Eliminator removed both just as well.

    Butch's does a good job on the early cleaning but the Bore Tech products will remove copper that Butch's leaves behind. And I want something that is safe to leave in the bore overnight.

    I don't believe any 'one' solvent will do it. I recommend Sweets, followed by Butch's BS. For carbon removal I recommend Bore Tech carbon remover. Just about everything works but this combo offers the quickest and cleanest job on the planet.

    Bore Tech Eliminator. Still need a little IOSSO love every now and then. No one solvent will get everything out. Mechanical abrasion is needed every now and then.

    Never ever clean without a bore guide! This is why.
