I ordered some Deaton's Gun Care Bore cleaner http://www.deatonsguncare.com/

I have used a lot of bore cleaners in my life trying to get the carbon out so I can get to the copper and usually I have to use a cleaner for the carbon and one for the copper. I decided to go through and clean all of my main hunting rifles and was I not only surprised but very impressed.

What impressed me the most was one of my hunting rifles that I have used for 10 years. I do not clean this rifle during sight in work and the hunting season, but at the end of each season I then clean it. I cleaned this rifle after I shot it this last last season with a major and popular carbon cleaner then with a popular copper remover and for extra measure I then finally used a foam cleaner and let it set in the barrel for 40 minutes, thinking that I got all the carbon and copper out of the barrel!!! Wrong!!!!

When I got the Deaton's Gun Care product, I decided to clean it again and see how well my previous cleaning did with the three products I had used to clean the rifle after this last season of hunting. Now was I ever surprised at how dirty my bore was. I found myself going through four separate layers of carbon and four layers of copper to finally get it clean. The first layer of carbon would come off then came a layer of copper and as I said I thought, well it is clean this time for sure. Wrong!!! I wanted to make sure so I continued and this happened four times.

First the layer of carbon then more copper.Finally I got down to the last layer of copper and the wet patches with the Deaton's bore cleaner started coming out clean and so I wiped it down with a few dry patches and they came out clean. You see, I thought the rifle was a clean rifle but the Deaton's bore cleaner proved that it was far from clean.

My groups should really improve now even over the fairly good hunting accuracy I was experiencing before I used Deaton's Gun Care. I will let you know how the groups do because with this rifle I am fixing to go through a major load work with some powders and bullets I have not tried in this rifle. Mike Price

Carl told me he just talked to you. Guys, this is good stuff, you will like it. I told Carl I had to try it first and I do a lot of shooting and I am very impressed with this product.

There are special lubricants (that is why there is a pending patent) that are in with the ammo based cleaner that stops any continued damage of surfaces plus loosens carbon from between the asperities in the metal while also sealing against rust neutralizing lingering effects of ammonia, requiring only that dry patches be run down the barrel after the cleaning is done.

PS - Very extensive testing was done with this product before being released.

Let me also say, with any product that has painted surfaces you would need to watch but I have used ammonia based product for years and have no major issues of any kind because I am careful. This is the best ammonia based product I have ever use. It is what it is and if you want a clean bore and group improvement this is one option for sure.

Ok sound good neck.

Bullet how long will a 4oz bottle last? Just a ruff estimate.
I am not sure but I think it will last me through one shooting, reload developing and hunting season I generally shoot 4 of my rifles on a regular bases so I figure at least a year for me. It does not take much.

Good was just wondering if I need one or two bottles.
I would get two of them because he can ship two for the same price as one. This ammonia based cleaner with the lubricants in it is thicker and does not run or drop easy so that helps keep it on the patch so you don't drip in on the outer surfaces of your rifle or stock. The time it will save in cleaning and how clean it gets the bore is worth the little effort to be careful when using it. It is cheap enough to try and if you don't like it, it did not cost a bunch.

I know I will use it from now on. I get tired of shoot two, three or four different rifles in a range session and then have to come home and clean for an entire evening and in some case into the next morning.
