    I use Deweyrods direct for bulk buy brushes and jags etc - quick to send and humans at the other end.

    J Dewey Rods

    .20 Caliber Bronze Rifle Brush - Dozen Pack

    Just remember to keep your order values low to take advantaqe of no additional fees on import... I think the cut off point is now 15? Use to be 20?

    Yep, respected US (family owned?) company.... I've had various bits and pieces from them over the years and they've always been quick to post and it hasn't taken too long for the stuff to arrive - A week/10 days from memory. Cost of delivery is on the site somewhere.

    Buy singles over here to get you going and order from Dewey at the same time.

    I use a Tipton 36" carbon fibre .17 rod, originally bought for my .17HMR but now used on my Tikka .17Rem and Sako A1 .20Prac.

    I like the Dewey jags too - these use a common thread to the Tipton.

    Basically.... my cleaning regime is........

    Using 3/4" square patches (Pro-shot or similar) I get rid of any carbon with a few drops (ie not dripping wet) of KG1 Carbon remover on a patch followed by a couple of dry ones to dry the bore.

    A squirt of Forrest bore foam which makes the bronze brushes unnecessary - I just use a bristle brush after it's been in there to get a bit of oxygen in the barrel to improve the chemical reaction and then push it out with 3/4" square patches until they're clean - usually only 3 or perhaps 4 patches required.

    This routine works pretty well on whatever calibre I'm on at the time.

    Yep, if it's not too far over the mark you might get lucky..... depends on how the boys are feeling when it arrives I guess. Depends on the shipping costs compared to VAT and handling (8?) to an extent as well.

    Just keep it to a jiffy bag size. Who knows????

    Tipton rods/bore guides - likely sources over here are Reloading Solutions, Norman Clark, Tim Hannam etc etc

    's me

    Cheers
