I purchased a chamber cleaning kit from Dewey. It came with a brass bore brush among other things. Do you all use this type of brush for chamber cleaning? What is everyones method of chamber maintenance?

Also, are you guys using any lube one the back side of the bolt lugs? If so, what type and how often? I had seen somewhere that if you don't use a lubed, after a while it can effect head space?

I use a Bore Tech chamber mop for the chamber and put Montana Extreme Gun Grease on the lugs all the time, not just after cleaning.

Do you just apply Bore Tech to your mop and then turn in the chamber?

How much greese are you using? Small dab I assume?

I squeeze a string from one side to the other on back side of the lug opposite the chamber. Its probably 1/16" diameter or less.

A 2” patch over a .410 shotgun bronze brush sprayed with brake cleaner is all it takes. Then a little T-25 white grease on the back side of lugs on bolt and good to go.
