Back in the day I'd have NEVER wasted it on a rifle barrel! ;)

Well after years of using hot water,boiling water, warm water with soap, cleaning concoctions with alcohol and Murphy,s, windshield washer fluid, and everything else you can try,  I decided yesterday to simplify.  Before I left the range I ran down one patch of very diluted ballistol I was using for range patch lube and when I got home just cold tap water and also used a  undersized jag with 3 patches on it to fill the grooves   and my .58 cleaned up faster than all of the above.

I hope Simple Green soap does not go "green". I have been using it as both a cleaning agent and a patch lube for general shooting for years with no rust problems. I do use grease or olive oil based patch lubes for hunting where the gun will remain loaded for several days.
