I will run JB paste thru a new gun 20 or so times down and back. Upon a suggestion from a tuner, I no longer use a brush. ..I use a swab. I clean the paste out with Hoppes #9, then Ballistol,  then dry…all with swabs. Then a couple of times with dry patches.

After that, only clean when it starts to shotgun. And general,  I omit the bore paste. I consider whether there's potential for damaging the rifling when choosing to use it or not. If it's really fouled, yeah, but only ten or so round trips.
