Thread: Cleaning tackle when away stalking

    Cleaning tackle when away stalking

    Hi all,

    I have plenty of tackle for cleaning when at home, however I don't want to take it all with me when I head up to Scotland or where ever. What do you usually take..bore snake is not a valid response.. Bad times involving a .243, bore snake, bench and lube

    Cheers

    I have a small pull through kit that I take. Got it from the BDS on line shop.

    I have a rod & patches, oil etc that live in the hard case I transport my rifle in plus a pull-through in my roe-sack.

    Wills --- Don't blame bore snakes for you being ????? (you can fill in this bit)

    An Otis kit will do most things well enough - clear loose blockages, effective light clean pull through for many calibres - just add oil & cloths to keep things dried off, tidy & running smooth. PLUS a good lens cleaning kit.

    call me crazy, but when I'm away for a few days I tend to pack a full cleaning kit, including air/dust sprayer aerosol, oils, patches, etc. etc. I also bring a full set of tools if I need to adjust my scope or tighten anything loose.

    when out on the hill I usually stick a few bits in a bag I leave in the argo, so if I do plug the barrel (never actually done that), it's not too bad to run back, clean out, take a fouling shot at a coke can and head back.

    Hitch them into the B&B bedroom sink and remember to flush away the mud.

    This being the now harder to find type of Highland B&B where you need a 50P for the wee single bar heater and if you donít materialize for breakfast before 9AM the porridge sits in the bowl along with a side order of burnt toast until you do.

    Happy Glenisla days.

    Unless your planning a fire fight. A lightly oiled rag for wiping down and some lens tissue and cleaner for scope will see you through

    Well I was going to suggest babywipes until I opened the thread.

    Depends on if you mean to take on the hill or leave in the temporary accommodation

    I take a folding rod and jags for the house and a pull through
    few Allan keys and the tool kit that sits in the car

    never shot enough on a trip to require more than remedial cleaning and removing dirt and water
