I am doing DSC1 and note the safety advice that if the muzzle gets plugged with mud or snow on a stalk, abandon the stalk if you cannot clean it out. So the question remains, what should I take with me to clear the obstruction.
Clearly a normal rod is too long to carry with you, and a bore-snake/pull through has little weight to get through an obstruction.
I have seen advice on here about coated curtain springs, but don't fancy the metal end of a spring scratching the bore if the coating wears a bit.
Presumably since the safety advice gives the option to remove the obstruction there should/must be a purpose made solution for .243, .270, .308 and similar to do so - what is it ?
All advice gratefully received.
