I have a .223 shoots about 250 round/year and a .308 shoots about 100 round/year.
My cleaning regime after every outing with both guns, a spray of Napier vp90 gun cleaner down the barrel, leave for a minute then two passes with a bore snake. Grease to crown and threads also the bolt. Then apply guns oil to exterior and a good wipe. The moderators get a good spray inside and out with wd40.
Once a year I take both guns to my local gun shop for a look over/service.
is this acceptable maintenance?
or should I buy a full cleaning kit?
i wash the bore snakes in warm water and hang to dry.
