I tie a couple of cotton patches on a string dampened with ballistol and pull through the barrel breech end too mussel  repeat until patches pull through clean .Run a couple of dry patches through until dry .frequency of cleaning will depend on your rifle .Smooth twist barrels can shoot thousands of rounds before P.O.I. is affected .L.W. barrels may be a few hundred .Some gun require a few shots after cleaning  to retain a steady point of impact .Some  shoot dead on P.O.I. right  after cleaning .As You become familiar with Your rifle You will learn what Your rifle requires  to shoot dead on  P.O.I also do not use a metal cleanign rod as this might damage Your barrel .
