Most of the barrel manufacturers and other authorities on the subject, advocate the cleaning of rifle barrels every twenty to thirty shots, give or take a few.
I'm quite happy with my regime in this respect and have gone on record in voicing my satisfaction with Wipe Out products, in the past.
However my rifles are stalking rifles, whilst they may on occasion, especially when developing a new load, shoot twenty or thirty rounds in a session, more often than not they will shoot one or two rounds before being put back in the cabinet, not to see the light of day for a couple of weeks, or more.
In the past, wether they've had one shot, or ten, if they're going back in the cabinet for more than twenty four hours, I've always run a wet patch through followed by a nylon brush, a couple of wet patches and a couple of drying patches. Then a proper clean after twenty to thirty shots.
Whilst I've no problem in giving them a good clean after a few rounds, if the rifles had a good soaking, I don't want to wear the barrel prematurely by cleaning it unnecessarily.
What regimes does everyone else follow after just a couple of shots?
