  • Ed's Red bore cleaner

    http://www.handloads.com/articles/?id=9

    Anyone ever use it? I was planning on using it as a general purpose firearms cleaner, like Hoppe's #9 or similar. Wasn't going to use it in rifle bores to cut copper, just for carbon fouling and the like.

The Kaiser asked a Swiss militiaman: "You are 500,000 and you shoot well, but if we attack with 1,000,000 men what will you do?" The soldier replied: "We will shoot twice and go home."

    I haven't used it, but plenty of people do.
    Google it and you can find the recipe so you can make up your own.

      I have the recipe, was just curious. I'm out of solvent and was looking at making some of this. If I leave out the lanolin, a gallon would cost less than $20. Pretty cheap if it works worth a damn. The online reviews I read are good. Most doke say it works better than store-bought commercial cleaners.

        Yep, got a gallon down stairs. It's great on carbon. Use it on my pistols, shotguns and such. Got a big tub of lanolin if you want some, I can send you enough for a batch...:

          Have you tried it with and without the lanolin? I was wondering what kinda difference it makes. The recipe says it's optional, and I'm not worried about the lubricious properties of my cleaner.

          If it makes a noticeable difference, I'll take some, but the recipe says I need 1lb.

            No, I've only tried it with. I have 3 lbs left of the 4 pound container I had to buy.

            Let me know.

                    I think I'll give it a try.

                      Mixed a gallon of it up the other day, minus the lanolin. Seems to work pretty well. I usually soak my parts when I have the time, so this will make a difference.

                      I cleaned a fairly dirty Beretta 92 with it, seemed to work as well as Hoppe's or Shooter's Choice, for a lot less $.

                          Nah, I'm not needing the additional lubrication properties of the lanolin. Thanks, though.
