  • I have used one piece Dewey cleaning rods for years and have no complaints. I see now some manufacturers of one piece non-coate

    I have used one piece Dewey cleaning rods for years and have no complaints. I see now some manufacturers of one piece non-coated cleaning rods claim the coated ones actually might pick up particles of various materiels which stick to the coating and potentially harm your expensive barrel. What do you think?

    Yeah Ish I've heard it both ways and I have both kinds of rods.The claim is always the steel (or dewey) will damage the barrel. Well, one thing is for sure the less you have to clean the less chance you will do damage regardless. My bores are ultracoated and I no longer use bore brushes to clean. Just solvent and patches do the trick. Bill Evans (the ultracoat guy) gave me some new stuff and said try it on my windshield. I did and it is better than RainX. Water beads and wind pushes it over the top of the cab. RainX only lasts a week or so this stuff is still working and its been 3 weeks since I put it on. Dangdest thing I ever saw I can see quite well in pouring rain with my wipers turned off.

      I rely on Dewey and Parker-Hale rods for chrome-moly and stainless barrels, and I see no wear or deterioration of accuracy that I can attribute to the rods.

        The only problem I see with coated rods, the coating wears off anyhow and I always wipe the rod down frequently when using. A dirty rod is one of the best ways to destroy the rifling especially at the muzzle!

          I don't get it, how does a cleaning rod hurt your barrel? When you guys clean your guns, you guys are wiping the rod down as you go? Do you spray your rod with anything before you clean a barrel?

            You don't want to scrape the rod against the barrel. When cleaning from the breech some people position the muzzle close to a wall so the brush cannot exit the muzzle completely and possibly scratch the crown.

              Back when I was using bore brushes to clean I used a drilled out case to protect the chamber and pushed the brush through from breech to muzzle and just unscrewed the brush. Screw it back on and go again.
