    Tipton rod every couple of hundred shots but I clean the mod out after every outing because it get damp inside,
    And yet another 7mm-08 user...

    And get a rod guide and some copper solvent. I always brushed mine out with a conventional solvent after the copper clean...

    BTW ProShot stainless steel rods are quite good as well but I prefer a Tipton...
    I got my Tiptons from Norman Clark, Rugby.
