    Wash out with water, unless you want to put acid on your rifle.

    Boiling water works well inside the barrel, get rid is all sorts of crud.

    The heat from the water helps to dry it up too.

    Don't spill and on your fingers because you'll drop your rifle ....... Then the tears will start.

    When I used to use Sweets 7.62 Copper solvent (which I avoid like the plague now, Boretech or KG is the go) I used to flush out using meths of Brakleen. Followed by a decent gun oil.
