    Use nothing but these for my rifle. You can also get some more abrasive ones for the first pass after a prolonged session (they are impregnated with bronze wire).

    Ditto. Been using them for years on a variety of calibres up to 9.3mm and usually top up when ordering other kit from Frankonia - and always keep a few in whatever cleaning kit I've access to when mobile.

    I've used VFG felts happily enough and still have some in a drawer, but now clean my rifles with C2R. Its action is entirely chemical, so an alloy jag and some suitable patches are all you need to get things really clean.
