I use presoaked patches every other shot when checking accuracy. When ur hunting u r not going to have time to swab the barrel in between sots.

These are the last ones that I bought. They work great for at the range.
If I'm at home Hoppe's no9 is always a good choice.

Ihave shot three does at one hunt from the time the first fell to the last was less then 5 min swabbed between shots made perfect shots. dont ever leave my meals to chance. just a simple spit patch run down the barrel assures perfect groups to kill with.

The solution for all this for me was Blackhorn 209...No swabbing necessary

X2. If you're rifle will shoot it, then there's no better solution unless you can also go smokeless.

I don't like to swab between shots.You won't be swabbing between shots in the field while hunting..

Actually I do Cec, unless it's a "quick as possible" follow up shot and I don't have time. That's what was recommended in my Knight user's manual years ago. Keep a few extra patches handy, chew one up and swab the barrel after one shot, to help the bullet seat properly by breaking the crud ring out. ;\)

so when you shoot a doe and a 150 class buck rolls out either you will swab or hope the poi is good as you always shoot with a swabbed barrel

i want my ml to shoot a good group from a clean bbl on fist shot and at least 2 more dirty shot so i have peace of mind

That's why I added "unless it's a quick as possible follow-up shot" ;\) My ML does shoot good out to 3-4 shots before cleaning, but it also shoots after swabbing down, and w/o the crud ring to crunch thru to seat the bullet. Remember, I still shoot Pyro.

For what it's worth....I shoot a patched round ball and there's no need to wipe between shots.
