    I have a Hammerli free pistol. The cleaning kit came with a nylon brush and a fiberglass cleaning rod. Of course it is a .22LR. A new Hammerli is around $2200. Just saying.

    How would bronze scratch steel when it is softer than steel?

    Good question. I've talked to guys that worried about a Bronze brush wearing out the barrel faster.
    When I asked if it was worse than a few jacketed bullets running down through the bore, it gets real quiet.

    On the outside of a barrel, I'd guess that the brush just 'disturbed' the finish more than it actually scratched the steel.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes.
    However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    Never ask an old person, "how are you doing"?
    They eagerly look forward to telling you,,,,,,,, and ya really don't want to know.
