I use a modified bore snake . I remove the brass brushes ( usually they have 2 ) and cut down the brass weight so it will fit in most guns . Make sure and sand the brass weight down smooth so there is no chance it can rip an oring .
The one thing I will say is when using a bore snake and oil or bore cleaner …Put a few drops directly down the bore and Not on the snake itself …It will squeeze out excess liquid as it goes in breech and will run EVERYWHERE !! I had to completely tear down my rifle last night to get all the bore cleaner out of the piston and piston sleeve ..It made a huge mess.
