For many many years I have used Hoppe's cleaning patches. I buy them in bulk from Midway. These sythetic patches always worked very well for me. The feature I like about them is that they don't shread / come apart or leave threads in the action or barrel. Alway worked great for me.

I recently order some more from Miday and it appears that they changed the design to a weaved cotton fabric which shreads to pieces when used with a pointed jag. Garbage.

Good job Hoppe's; you made something that worked and made it useless. My vent of the year.

Yeah, I have just been cutting-up Tee Shirts for years.

The wife has one of those rotary cutters. I think I'll give it a try. Who needs a T shirt anyway.

I use my old Carhart tee shirts and cut them up like WonderMan describes.

I posted a while back that I used the same thing for a long time. Only problem for me is that I kept running out at the wrong time.

I found a bath towel at Wally World for $3.00.

The wife has a cutting board and a rotary cutter that as sharp as a scalpel....well, almost.

I found that I could cut that towel into 900 pieces in 10 minutes with the rotary cutter and cutting board.

Most times those 900 pieces are too big when using a jag, so I get more pieces yet.

I forgot to mention a long time ago all Hoppe's patches were cotton and then they got a better idea and went to polyester. I didn't like those much.

I have no problem with "fuzz" left behind when using a tight fit. Works for all my rifles (even the muzzle loaders) and handguns.

Old socks, Tee shirts, drawers, etc make good patches.

Some folks say that they ain't wasting their time and buy in bulk. Good enough if you wanna wait 5 days for them to arrive.
