Personally, I scrub the area, then pull a bore snake through, because I have found the idea of never cleaning a .22 to be a myth in my own accuracy testing. Cleaner turns out to be more accurate, even though my grandfather told me the opposite, and I believed him for 30 odd years.
But drilling a hoe in your receiver? Geez! That's a new one on me. But people cover themselves in tattoos now so what do I know?
