I myself use Hoppes No.9 as well. For 3 simple reasons:

1) It's not a abrasive like some Mad
2) It's worked well so why change ??
3) Its readily avalible Very Happy

My cleaning method for barrels is:

1) One patch with alot of Hoppes,
2) 10 COPPER Brush Strokes, (Stainless steel and nylon are a no-no)
3) One dry patch to pick up the gunk.

I clean them offen enough that normally this makes the bore look nice and clean Cool

For anyone else, but 10ring, I would say that I approve. But for 10ring it would be a waste to use Hoppe's a a cologne. What a waste!!

I'll stick to my Old Spice myself 10Ring Very Happy

Anyways I find that the patches dont do too much compared to using a good cleaning rod with a copper brush on the tip Smile Anyone feel the same way ?? Confused

Well....Usually now, older men wear Old Spice (like 30's and up) i've never found a teenager that wore it. That is, until now Shocked

My wife says she'd kill me if i wore it because her dad wore it and it would just be the obvious Laughing

Hoppes on the other hand Very Happy

Humm getting alittle off topic with the Old Spice, Anyways I like the stuff Cool

Tell me Bushmaster what type of oils and greases would you avoid putting in a rifle ?? Confused

I was thinking Silicon oil might work but I'm not sure if it will cause moister problems etc that WD-40 causes Confused

I don't use old spice but I do use hoppes #9 on my rifles and for gun oil I use EEZOX. It is a synthetic gun oil amd works from 450 degrees F to 95 degrees below F. I have used it for years with absolutey no frozen bolts etc. It cleans and lubes, prevents rust & finger printing, and there is no oily film, dry to touch. It's Good Stuff ................ !! Smile

Anyone try Hoppe's Elite copper solvent....??

I did just for gits and shiggles.....let's say I'm tickled with it and I don't impress easily...........

No soaking or excessive brushing, simply simple......

I wet a bore mop with it and stroke the bore about 10 times, the Elite will foam blue then go white......

I then wet a bronze brush with it and stroke the bore about 7 or 8 times....

I then push one patch wet with it all the way thru the bore.....

I then wet/dry patch the bore with two or three tight patches using carburator cleaner....

One final dry patch before bore oiling......

Whole process takes about 5 minutes or less and the bore has Zero copper/fouling content.......

Going to have to try that oil, Just incase mother nature desides to be bad to me one of these days Very Happy

Hm, seems I am going to have to have a look at both the Hoppes Elite and th EEZOX, they both sound good.

At the moment I am using SWEETS Bore Solvent for cleaning the bore and Nycolube 127 for bore protection as a lubricant for moving parts. I am also using a Silicone Cloth to wipe down all exposed metal parts and for storage I am using a liberal coating of Lanoguard 3000.

This works for me but I like the concept of the EEZOX, especially the "dry to the touch" idea and single application.

Cheers, Vince

Looks like I'll have to buy stock in Hoppes & who ever makes EEZOX. This site is growing & if everyone tries Hoppes Elite & EEZOX, I'll be rich. I'm going to give it a try myself.
Keep it coming...
