To increase the service life of our barrel, you need to clean it as regularly as you use it.
And to maintain the consistency of your gun’s barrel, minimize bore erosion and prevent damage, you need a high-quality cleaning rod.
And a quality rod is one that is rigid and will not cause damage to your bore.
Cleaning rods are either made of brass, steel, or aluminum. Brass and aluminum cleaning rods are not the best because they are not rigid enough.
Steel rods are rigid but not ideal for cleaning a bore. Most gun barrels are made of steel. And when you use a steel rod to clean a steel bore, the steel to steel contact may cause some damage.
