I use weedeater line, and just push the patch through from the breech. 

It doesn’t damage the rifling or the crown, and it’s cheap and easy and portable. I can’t see any reason to change it with something more complicated and expensive.

I also do what was recommended earlier: Run a patch through with solvent, let it soak for a bit, then run a couple dry patches through. Repeat until they come out clean.

I do have a fiber optic LED light that I got from the gun shop for inspecting later, if I want.

When you start running any kind of metal down the barrel, you’re also introducing the risk of damaging it. It would probably take a lot, but why risk it, when the simple and cheap way works so well?
