As a rule I bore snake 3 passes immediately after the last round of the session. I clean them after when accuracy goes south & I can see copper build up with the bore scope. Using this stuff I will be cleaning after every session now. Thanks for the reminder.

I ordered 4 packages of this stuff last week. Looking forward to trying it out. Looks like some delicate work to put it together, but that is the kind of stuff that I like.

That won't do it when shooting corrosive primers. When you get home, boil a pot of water and pour it through the bore.

guys, you can buy the stuff at lowes or home depot, well really any home and garden store. Well, maybe not the carbon but that is as simple as burning wood.

For cleaning after using corrosive primers I know a guy that has used Windex with Vinegar to clean after shooting black powder. He squirts it down the barrel until it runs out the muzzle end, then soaks a couple of patches in it and runs them down the barrel followed by dry patches. The bore of his BPCR shines.

Thanks for the Tip Equalizer. I think I remember hearing about that in the distant past...

The website says it has a 20 year shelf life. I will play with the one package I bought as I do shoot black powder with musket caps. But my real intention is save it for the emergency time. So plan is to try it, if it works then buy some for storage.

What "Stuff"?
the potassium and sulfur.

it’s literary stump remover, sulfur, and ground up wood that has been burnt (carbon). the mixture is flammable until you mix it with a liquid like acetone, and makes it workable and allows you to seat the anvil without going off

i think he uses aluminum powder to help with ignition on the potassium side of things

been looking at ways to reload primers for about 6 months, and just haven’t had time to do it yet.

there is ways to make non corrosive primer material as well but it requires a couple chemicals that you may or may not be able to obtain and are a little more dangerous to mix up and make

For cleaning, 10 percent ballistol and 90 percent water works well. Has worked in the old ak for years.

Actually the wood is cooked not burned. Think charcoal, not ash.
