I guess I could do a search but hey, I'm lazy. Ever once in a while I like to use a bronze brush on my rimfires I have ordered My first 10-22 is there a way to do this with out using a rod?

I believe the Otis pull through system includes a small brass brush that attaches to the end of the cable .

Boresnakes have bronze brushes built in. Otis makes a pull through too, and patchworm may have a brush attachment. Not sure havent used a patchworm yet.

I have tried the VFG felt buttons on my Patchworm but found they are not optimal. The felt button is designed to work on a special brass jag which has a larger diameter than the Patchworm line. So the button compresses on the line and doesn't fit the bore as tightly as it should.

My problem with Boresnake is that it really isn't very effective, and all the crud sticks to it until it is laundered. My problem with Otis is that their brushes are steel-core and their patch jags are the loop type which doesn't fit equally tight around the bore.

I recommend the Pro-Shot pull-through kit (proshotproducts.com). The brushes are all brass-core, and they have a patch jag that works as well as a spear-tip jag.

This gives Me plenty of options, bit to be honest I am kinda leaning back to the clean out hole in the back of the receiver and using the rod, patches and brushes I us on My other rimfires. Thanks for everyone's help I will have to think on it. I do have a bore snake and I can use it for the first cleaning till send it to CPC for a complete tune up.

+1 for the boresnakes or the Otis kit. The only way you'll use a rod for cleaning a 10/22 from breech to muzzle would be to remove the barrel or drill a hole in the back of the receiver. I'm not a fan of either one of those for semi-annual cleaning or after range sessions.
