Do I Need Model Specific Bore Guides
I'm not a newbie, but this is a very basic question.
I've been using bore snakes, from the bore to the muzzle for the past several years on my rifles.
I've never used a bore guide (I know, sacrilege). I've acquired some expensive rimfire (Cooper 57M, Weather/Anschutz/Zephyr 2, Tikka 1x, and a few others. My next buy is going to be an Anschutz 1712 Sporter. I don't shoot thousands of rounds. I'm primarily an archer but am getting fired up about rimfire more these days (squirrel hunter). So, I've never put more than a couple hundred rounds of .22 through any of my rifles, but I intend to do more informal shooting as I near retirement in 1.5 years.
I'm thinking I should upgrade my cleaning technique to better protect these rifles.
Do I have to get different bore guides for each one?
