545 boresnake

Recommended Posts

I am looking to find a bore snake for a 545. I have not had any luck finding one at all. Will one for a .223/5.56 work? None of my .22 cleaning supplies will fit down the barrel, but I was thinking that a boresnake might have better luck. Any opinions out there?

 

Also looking for any other 545 cleaning supplies that I can find.

I use the bore snake for 22 caliber and it works fine. I think it says it is for 22, 223, and 5.56 on the packaging.

 

Same with me.

Thanks guys. Almost bought one today but I figured I would check the forum first. I will be picking one up tomorrow.

I bought a .22 snake and couldn't pull it all the way down the barrel.

Had to really tug to get it back out.

Anyone else experience this?

 

You probably did not put enough CLP or cleaner on it? If it is really dry, you will have problems pulling it through.

I had a .204 snake lying around and that's what I use for a quick clean.

 

I use different bore snakes/cleaning brushes for black powder and corrosive primers to avoid possible contamination of guns which use smokeless non-corrosive ammo.

 

Too anal?
