The pellets I bought came with jags but no nuts, but it seems the pellets sort of screw on.They sell rod jags and snakes specifically for the pellets. You should be able to push a pellet from breach to muzzle with a rod. The jags and snakes I’ve seen have a tiny nut on the end to hold the pellet
I'm one of those crazy people who cleans before accuracy falls off, that mens every time I shoot a firearm. I guess I'm wondering if people use them instead of patches for general cleaning.Pellets have a larger load bearing surface area on the bore's surface compared to a less efficient patch hence more efficient. Many folks use em when rf accuracy begins to suffer. YMMV
If they are the Tipton pellets like I use, there should be a brass jag inside the pouch with the pellets. Cleaning, oiling, I feel like they do a better job more efficiently. If you let your cleaning rod rotate freely inside the bore the pellet won't unscrew from the jag on the backstroke.I just got two packs of the felt cleaning pellets and have a few questions. I have 22 caliber to use on 3 rimfire and 2 centerfire and 6.5 caliber to use on my 6.5 Creedmore.
Why pellets instead of just patches and when?
Do you use then exclusively or in combination?
I also bought JB Bore Paste and the directions are to swab the barrel 10 times, If you use pellets for that do they come off when you pull the rod out and is that done after just cleaning with solvents.
I know how to use them but when and with what?
The reason I ask is I also bought so JB Bore paste and they recommend swabbing the barrel back and forth 10 times. Maybe I'll have to use patches for that.My understanding is on a jag you remove patch or pellet before pulling the rod back through the bore on it one way trip from bore guide to muzzle
Put a mark on the rod after measuring so you don't poke the jag out past the muzzle and then proceed with back n forth.The reason I ask is I also bought so JB Bore paste and they recommend swabbing the barrel back and forth 10 times. Maybe I'll have to use patches for that.
