Interesting. I own no bronze bore brushes and will never use them. I only use nylon bore brushes and carbon fiber cleaning rods. But then I never shoot lead pills, only FMJ's.

Okay, HGS, nice. I wonder what topics people might ask for? There will pistols seen less often like a Makarov or some long guns.

Most topics have already been addressed some where already. And a bunch of guys on this site, no offense intended, could show even the average working gunsmith a thing or three.

Mostly I am into wheelguns and have reached the level where I know when to stop and to head for my gunsmith. after some easy basics - Some simple stoning, changing springs etc.

I have carefully watched many great Youtube videos made by knowledgeable people. Of course there are the ones made by wantabees.

What tickles me is the hundreds and hundreds of gun review made by people who have had their XDs45 or whatever gun for two weeks or maybe a month. And they want to share a total review - 200 to 400 rounds down range is all they have done.

The biggest exception is Nutnfancy's deep, organized and detailed reviews. Will someone wake me a few minutes before he wraps up. Nay, he is good. And I appreciate the videos that ha and his son made of his local gunsmith showing jobs that a careful gun owner could do by following the video. He provides a good service.

For heavily leaded barrels, I'll even use a stainless steel bore brush.
Just don't be too aggressive and only a few passes before switching back to a bronze brush.

Good video for "beginning" hobbyists! I use a sonic cleaner on my "Tupperware" and others. Then Ballistol the Heck and wipe down! I use Ballistol for the bores and it keeps Leading to a monimum. fwiw

I actually remove the grip panels on my older Rugers and dunk them in total in a ultrasonic bath. Easiest way to clean them.
