Just wondering those of you that clean between shots. What do you use and what is your process?

I take a patch, lightly apply some isopropyl alcohol (Windex works great) and swab the bore of the rifle. As you work the patch down the bore, work the patch in short strokes. Work from the muzzle to the breech. After the damp patch, then work two dry patches through the bore. This will remove additional fouling and also dry the bore.

I use "Windex MultiSurface Cleaner with Vinegar" in my ShilohSharps .40-65, its the best stuff that I have ever used, I am shooting true Blackpowder, Swiss 1.5

This is how I did it as well but used the BP solvent instead. I have now converted to smokeless. For BP, I wanted all of my shots to simulate a clean barrel in a hunting condition. I would also shoot some shots with a "dirty" barrel afterwards just to see if there was an effect if I had a follow up shot while hunting.

I chew on a patch and swab the barrel between shots, up to 3 maybe 4 shots, then I actually clean it. ;\)
