    Are u talking about during the cleaning process or b4 firing?
    Depends upon which solvent - despite what the manufacturers may say about their products being safe I don't like leaving any trace of them behind the exception being good old Hoppes 9.
    I use meths or Brakleen during cleaning to neutralise and remove any trace of solvent and the same 2 again to remove oil before firing.

    Nope, I just use the cleaning product on patches, followed by dry patches.

    Then it just gets some sort of gun-oil. Liking G96 at the moment - stuff smells incredible and can be used for cleaning, lubrication and protection (CLP). I just keep smelling my shotgun...god damn I want to eat it.

    I dry with a couple dry patches, then I put a couple with a light spray of innox through the bore before storage. I don't wipe it out before shooting...or if I do wipe the bore because it's a bit dusty, its with more innox...and I'll shoot it with innox left in barrel (emphasis on the light spray used).

    In general I don't get to much distance between clean and dirty bore shots using this method. I don't totally clean my barrels (of copper) until at least 60 shots or more. Just basic clean, then innox.

    I have been using sweets for years, only ever patched out and oiled,never had a problem or any pitting in any barrels blued or stainless.
    If you are really worried about sweets(and there is absolutely no need to unless you are leaving it in there for months) then use a wet patch yes just wet with water, ammonia is attracted to/dissolves in water. Meths is a pretty shit cleaner for all but the lightest of oils,it does however absorb moisture so if your OCD isn't satisfied yet you could....

    Clean with sweets or any other ammonia based solvent,clean that out with water,clean the water out with meths, then put some shitty engine oil in there

    Yep, exactly what I use.

    Like Zimmer I also use it before firing.

    If I wasn't such a retard I would find and link that link that has been posted a few times of a pretty comprehensive test of lube/rust preventers.

JBs or Autosol if really really desperate. Brakleen to remove all of above. Brakleen also has some mild carbon removing properties
