Break-Free Bore Cleaner - An all-purpose nitro-powder solvent that removes firing residue and contaminants.
A clean bore, free from metal fouling, is critical to shooting accuracy. However, there is another reason why a good barrel loses its ability to shoot accurately. The bore surface has been degraded either from erosion or corrosion. Many shooters in an effort to clean a bore from metal fouling actually etch the bore by using metal aggressive chemicals or allow corrosion from the use of water based cleaners.
The harsher ammonia based bore cleaners that dissolve metal can't distinguish between good steel and unwanted copper and/or lead. However, once the integrity of the steel has been compromised, the bore will foul more quickly and rust faster, as well as losing its accuracy.
Break-Free Bore Cleaner cleans firing residue by optimum solvent penetration without using aggressive alkaline chemicals that can dissolve metal, abrasive materials that can erode the bore, or water based cleaners that can cause rust.
Break-Free bore Cleaner is a moderately aggressive solvent formulation designed to dissolve powder and gas residues and loosen metal fouling without degrading the bore's finely machined surface. The actual removal of metal fouling is left to the light scrubbing action of soft wire or nylon bore brushes followed by a cloth patch.
The more conservative approach taken by Break-Free Bore Cleaner may not be the fastest, easiest way to remove bore fouling, but it is the right way.
