Don't know a thing about the Bore Snake but beware of flexible, pull-through type products. These tools-on-a-cord things have been known to wear grooves in the muzzles of rifles. I like the cleaning rod from the breach option. Can't hurt anything that way unless through very rough handling. There is a post of mine in this section, somewhere. It's slow but it works.remington70023 said:Wondering if any of you shooters have used a Hoppes Bore Snake to clean their 700. I use them on my Glock 22, M&P .40, and my .38 special pistols. Never used one in a rifle looking for opinions, thank you!
