I have to clean mine sometimes while at the range, to prevent jams and functional problems. Usually just a squirt of #9 on a rag or Q-tip will get the gunk out of the action and everything will be good again. Sometimes I'll follow it with a drop or two of oil.

I always try to clean it after every use. Maybe I'll go clean it now.

All of my 10/22's have target barrels with match chambers. An OEM barrel has a looser chamber and will be able to go through many more rounds than a match chamber before accuracy drops off.

I have M77 in 7x57 also. Mine has the long throat to accept long military rounds. Don't recall cleaning it.

I have some firearms that are in NIB condition. I still wipe them down with Eezox and run some through the bore.

Firearms maintenance should be a regular occurrence. Just because a firearm can function without cleaning, doesn’t mean you should treat them that way.

I still laugh at the early part of this thread where firearms cleaning was compared to toilet training. It is a good analogy.

That's what I've come to believe, but I only shoot LRN rounds. I always figured it was because they have a little wax on them that coats the barrel. Does anyone have a different experience using copper-coated rounds?
