    @SlowElliot, are you intending to run the Tipton jags?
    I've found using pre-cut and correctly sized patches with the their jags best.
    Using the traditional roll of 4x2 cloth and cutting my own caused problems frustratingly often with oversize patches. Their jags have relatively tight tolerances in my barrels, especially my 17 caliber one. The difference between undersized and oversized is bugger all.
    If you don't have one already, an action specific bore guide also makes cleaning less of a chore plus protects both rod and bore from each other.

    Thanks mate, I'll keep that in mind when using the tipton jags.
