Has anyone used these, and do they do a good job?

Was amazed with the job it does2-3 run's down the bore are all I needed. I still wire brush the chokes with a cordless drill ocassionally.

Good investment!

We use the routinely on our weapons at work. I strongly recomend them.

And as mentioned a periodic routine cleaning with regular methods and tools is probably a good idea if you do lots of shooting.

The are the cat's meow, I rarely have to run it through twice.

The Bore Snakes are great, especially in the field. I like them so much I use them on my issued rifle and pistol (I am in the Army).

I am with Tank, I like the Kleen Bore a little better because it is more rigid, but the snake is easier to carry in the field.

Best idea since sliced one and you will buy one for every pistol, rifle and shotgun you own.

I got one while I was away on a hunting trip because it was the only thing I could find. I love it. Works great

I keep one in my bag it is great for a quick cleaning. I have on more than one occasion used it to make sure the bore was clear while hunting.
