Getting low on my supply of metal piston/shotty bore brushes. Gona give some plastic ones a try again in pistol and shotty. Had them at my local store but, they stopped carrying them. So Brownells is hooking me up.
Used them before and liked them. I use pretty aggressive cleaners so I dont need to saw back and forth all day...bronze one's tend to kinda "blue" the bore, send whiskers hither etc...when used a lot, as one does with pistol and shotty. For rifle Ill use premium bronze once or twice then chuckem.

What's yer take on plastic bore scrubbers. I like em! Very Happy

I like the plastic bore scrubbers but for some reason they seem to be heading the way of the DoDo bird around here. I stopped many years ago using bronze brushes cuz of the copper content.

Even took a ride to Montezuma, IA which is not to far and went to Brownells & Sinclair (Same company) and even they had a limited supply of plastic brushes!!

Yup- they sell out quick. I'm going to order some more now that I spilled the beans. I go through 45 and 20g brushes like nuts. Sweet's and Butches eats the so called bronze ones. Not to mention them wire whiskers aint no fun everywhere when they shed.

I like them. Last month I got a bronze bristle loaded with #9 under my finger nail. I only push my brushes through the chamber end and unscrew them at the muzzle. When I reached to unscrew I reached too quick and drove the ##!$#&# thing right through my gloves. Even after digging it out with tweezers and several soaks in hot soapy water the finger was burning. I finally soaked in a super saturated baking soda solution to relief the discomfort. I have upped my gloves from latex to rubber and also bought several plastic brushes. Not to deviate too much but does anyone use brass choreboy pad pieces for agressive bore cleaning?

On my bottle of cleaner it says it dissolves residue from plastic shotgun wads. I have zero experience using plastic bristles in that environment. I am reading positive reviews, so this never comes up as an issue?

stovie get yourself a metal wirly brush for your .20ga. the bristles are about the same diametre as a welders wirebrush but go around in a loop and back in to the centre. it will scrub the most sticky crud from the ol smooth bore and you will only need oily rag after.
Ive had nylon brushes in the past and they worked ok but I cant see them shifting much more than powder residue.

I quite using brushes several years ago except in pretty unusual situations. Learn the joy of barrel cleaning without brushes.

I have used chore boy on my older guns and they worked well in removing copper deposits, and since I don't have a suppressor, I don't think the ATF will classify my 2 boxes of chore boy as NFA ---> www.huntingnut.com/ind...=chore+boy

What? Omni...Please explain wht the copper has to do with anything when it comes to cleaning gun barrels.

I tried synthetic bristle bore brushes and went back to phosphorus bronze brushes.

I use Butch's Bore shine, but when I want to get serious I use Hoppe's #9 Benchrest copper solvent.

Some misguided jackboot at the BATF put choreboys on a list because people use them as a filler for suppressors.

Bushy, some of us stopped using lead bullets some time ago. The more recent bullet designs are lead core with copper jackets or monolithic copper. So a few of us have to worry about cleaning copper out of our barrels instead of lead (you still use the term,"get the lead out" quite frequently?) Anyway, if you use a copper solvent like Bore-Tech, it dissolves the brass brushes so you need the nylon brushes to "get the copper out" and still be able to tell if you finished cleaning the barrel since a brass brush will always be dissolving and showing you have a dirty barrel.

No...Slimjim...Not really. I have just started shooting lead because of the expense of copper jacketed bullets. I have been shooting copper jacketed bullets my entire life (I hate lead fouling). I place myself as an "expert" (I'm Just a drip now) when it comes to cleaning out copper from a gun barrel. I will continue to use Phosphorus Bronze brushes for that job plus Hoppe's Benchrest #9. My gun barrels have no copper or other fouling (including lost brush "copper". And unlike Stovey. I'm not bothered by the occasional bristle that gets free from the brush.

I have seen very little wear or loss of bronze from my bore brushes using a copper solvent.

Nope. That and a few added tax burdens added by obama. I never knew I was part of the 1 percenters.

Hopes BR et al will dissolve the guilding metal deposited in the barrel, but it will also dissolve the bronze brush too, hence nylon brushes. I've used bore mops, but now use Dewey rods and jags and patches. I have nylon brushes but haven't used them as of yet. Also, be aware the some bore brushes and mops have a brass spiral wire rod that can be affected.
