    It was time to clean what is becoming my favorite .22LR. The Ruger RP rimfire. Put about 500-700 rounds down range sense last real cleaning. I had expected some build up I was shooting some coated rounds. But it did not seem to be an issue. Over all it cleaned up fast than expected. I use some Slip 2000 carbon killer bore cleaner. It removes plastics from coat rounds. Followed by some lead remover. Patched dry then CLP. Now I have a urge to get it dirty again.

    Clean and lubricate every time before long term storage (to me that's stored for 1 month or more without usage). I do like the one marked by Remington but you can choose whatever you like here. Btw, there I remember a great video by Lowlight demonstrating his process on the site somewhere. If I find it I will share it here. His process is simple, easy and effective.

    Same here. Discovered the stuff (kroil) about 20 years ago. Ill admit to doing something stupid- I put some on my lug nut studs, I used to get all my tires from the scrap heap at my local Sunoco station. What people discarded I could get a few thousand miles out of, so as you come image I’m changing my tires often. Free tires and free labor (mine). So why not make it easier to loosen the rusty lugs. Darned wheels came off while driving! But like @1shrewloose I hadn’t given the product any thought as far as bore cleaning.
    There’s never a wrong time to do the right thing … there’s never a right time to do the wrong thing.

    For copper I use Ferric chloride on a patch then clean with clean water.

    Have to be carefull with it in a bore.

    For lead I use sodium hydroxide solution at 200 F.

    Wow..that stuff sounds slicker than semen on a gold tooth..as they say in the panhandlle sometimes about slick things. Now we had an old dispathcer at Corpuse who said he made some kinda special oill out of rattle snake fat. He said it was so slick if a person put it on a gun all the screws would fall out of it. Never did figure out if he hew was just teasing or not. He sounded serious and knew how to make everything else. He make hand tied fishing nets which are high dollar on te coast. Taught me how to make jerky. What a guy wished I had he oil reipe. .

    Not all fingernail polish remover is acetone based.

    You can buy a quart can of acetone at your local paint/ hardware store.

    I buy it in gallon cans.
