Re: Need 45/70 Cleaning Rod

This is what works for me. Everybody has their own method.

I use a J. Dewey Mfg. Co. Inc. (Southbury, CT. 06488)Fiberglass rod with aluminum adapter and a shotgun swab for range cleaning. Cleaning patches (45 cal) work great also. Start with Remington's 40-X Bore Cleaner and follow up with Hoppe's No.9 Liquid cleaner. Finish with Remington Rem-Oil for storage. Always run a clean patch through the bore to remove excess oil prior to shooting again.
