Ingredients- today’s “super cleaners”



Log in to see fewer ads
Some of today’s bore cleaners work great, M-Pro7, Hoppes Elite, Gunzilla CLP, etc. the ingredient used most (most >50%) is H2O, water! Water is the best solvent for powder fouling...look at Black Powder residue, I use 90% Water and 10% Ballistol...it’s the water that cuts through the crude with the Ballistol remaining as a preservative.

The products I mentioned above are fantastic in their own right - with the addition of their “secret ingredients” to water clean amazingly well.

Birchwood Casey Muzzle Magic is a great water based powder residue cleaner formulated for black powder guns but it works great on all firearms to remove burnt powder crud. It is also good to clean after using corrosive primer ammo.

I think I've saved a older Marlin 60..
With wipe-out..
It's a foam you just squirt into the bore. It foams up.
Clean as a whistle.

I used Wipe-Out just last night to clean the bore of my 380ACP.

...Gunzilla Does Not contain water...100% plant based. Stuff is amazing. I only clean with Hoppes when I get a little nostalgic. Hoppes does work great also.
