Whats everyone using to clean their barrels?

I have been using Shooters Choice and MP Pro. I like the Pro cause of no smell at all. I use that more then the shooters.

Weapon Shield for light cleaning, but I've shot lead or a lot of rounds, it's a quick dose of Hoppes Number 9, followed by Weapon Shield. Bore snake on 22lr, .5.56mm and 7.62x39mm if shooting wasn't too extensive, but every once in a while they need a deep cleaning with patch, brush and rod.

yeah me too.... I like Hoppe's Elite or #9 as far as oils, cleaners, bore gel, etc

That, the ol trusty gun rag, a bore-snake, a brush, q-tips, some patches and I like to get em squeaky clean.

A favorite trick I've found is using a chopstick with a cotton patch and Hoppe's cleaner on it to be very effective in tight nooks and crannies. Chopsticks are sturdy.
