I use Fluid Film on all of my firearms. It's a great product and has hundreds of applications

I started using Butch's Bore Shine a very long time ago when they were little but also use Gutshot Fluid Film...they ready for the Fluid Film is that is does not contain and silicone which eats up the rubber seals on scopes. I use FF on my receiver parts along with Break Free, it is much heavier that FF is....

Now for long term storage is Bore Butter, it "sticks" to the bore much better than either Butch's or FF or even Break Free, especially in the vertical position....my rifle don't spend much time these days since I have retired, but before then when I was on the road a lot and my range time was limit, I used T/C Bore Butter and a lot of it......

Never used a bore snake, have it in my cleaning kit I take to the woods but do take my extra Dewey cleaning rods with me....

Gobi - That is good advice, I use a Dewey rod when I do a lot of shooting at the range...the last time I went pdog shooting was about 10 years ago and use my 25-06 Sendero, and a 270 Sendero, both are tack drivers. Set up a portable shooting bench and the got my spotter going and my range finder ranges calculated, use the 117 gn Sierra in the 25-06 Rem and the 140 gn Nosler Ballistic Tip in the 270, both bullets are a bit heavy for pdog shooting but with the wind blowing the heavier bullet worked out well.....PS - have a custom made Shilen in 7mm Mag that shots the 120 gn amazing accurate at 600 yards but did not need it....but use the Dewey rods a lot during that time after about every 25 rounds or so....

I have often looked at the bore snake but since I have gotten a lot of Dewey rods (about 8 of them) I will stick with them for now.....

Tell us what you get at the Gun Show......

I've always used G-96 with my bore snakes and had good luck with that. the bore snake was definitely a huge help on my p-dog a couple years ago, Used it as soon as the gun started going all over, one swipe through and was back to blowing up dogs
tank of gas: $50
hunting licence: $190
ammo: $20
getting to spend time with family and hunting buddies: priceless
