Everyone has opinions. mine, Steel rods are great bore ruin tools.

But as to Op, check Squeezer, he had it 100% correct. It does scare one when the CZ "guy" is SOOOOO wrong. 22 cal rods work perfect in the bore. CZ bores are not extrat tight, only a terrible ejector design, that interferes.

Tomato - Tomoto. Personally I like the Patchworm. Inexpensive and easy. Couple wet patches, then a dry, then shot that sucker. :-).

I touch up the chamber with a bronze brush on a length of rod.
For .22 bore brushing, I use one of these Dewey pull-through cables (below) and their pistol length brushes, usually nylon.
For .22 patch pulling, I go with a PatchWorm (below) and 7/8" round patches.

I like that system Mark. I too also use a brush in the chamber with a little bore tech carbon remover, probably about every five hundred rounds or so. And also wipe clean the receiver and bolt on occasion when needed. And relube with touch of mineral spirits off the finger onto the bolt.

Sounds pert near perfect to me.
Personally, I find I do best when I neither overthink nor overdo.

I am with Gerald on that . For many years, I have been using high quality polished stainless steel rods in all my quality rimfires. To name drop a few: Anschutz 54 ( all 5 of them ) Win 52, Rem 40X, Martini intl. and Brno No 4. Of course I use quality bore guides with that.

Be careful the can of worms you rattle.

As to rods !!!!!!!!!

I say to each their own but I subscribe to a .17 or a .20 proshot s/s cleaning rod. There are as many options and opinions to cleaning rods as there are ways and opinions as to how and how often to clean your barrel/bore/chamber/gun.....

My .17 is used in my 17’s and my .20 is used in all my .22’s.

Simple Cleaning Method

I have gone all the way back to a boresnake and CLP. Works just fine.

This comes up a lot. It should be a sticky. Pro-Shot .22 caliber rods work just fine if you get that pesky ejector out of the way. Otherwise, get a PatchWorm.

My firearms aren't the only thing I clean; I have some aluminum and coated rods, and none of them carry anything that would damage the bore, because I check and clean them too. Wiping down a cleaning rod and inspecting it really isn't very difficult, nor does it take a lot of time.
just a random thought....

Just out of shear curiosity, from where would the aluminum and coated rods pick up abrasives that would be hard enough to scratch a bore? Is powder fouling really that tough? Is it the carbon deposits that do it? If so, wouldn’t the second bullet down a dirty bore scratch it much worse than a coated rod? I have heard for years coated rods pick up abrasives that could scratch a bore - I just never understood the source of the abrasives........ school’s in session - learn me please LOL.

My best shooting sporter is my 452 varmint. I did the same thing to it when it was new because I didn't know better. And after 12k rounds it still shoots sub 1/5" groups at 50y fairly frequently. In sure it'll be fine.

SS for 22 and CF for the 17s cause thats all I have. Snakes won't do squat for a carbon ring developing unless ya pull thru after every shot and good luck with that for groups.

Shum:
There are abrasives in the primer for ignition. That and if you keep rubbing one metal with another in the same place, even w/o abrasives involved, both will show wear eventually hence bore guide affectionados. The longer lasting, slippery smooth with less friction when accidentally dragging on the breech, SS rods are the best IMO.
If one is rubbing the rifling a change in equipment and/or method and/or using too big of a patch.

There ya go, 2˘ please.
