The objective is to remove any powderor metal fouling from the bore. This can be done virtuallyanywhere with little or no disassembly.Black powder or muzzleloding firearms require much morefrequent cleaning. Because chemicals used in black powderare extremely corrosive, it’s recommended to clean the boreperiodically during the shooting session.

BLACK POWDER CLEANINGBLACK POWDER CLEANINGBLACK POWDERCLEANUP.Unlike modern smokeless gunpowder, black powder –the original muzzleloader propellant – is somewhatcorrosive and leaves heavy deposits in the boreafter each firing. That’s why it’s recommended toclean the bore every few rounds.In addition to black powder, a number of alternativepropellants are available. While these easy-to-loadpellets are very convenient, they are highly corrosiveand require more frequent cleanup than traditionalblack powder.NOTE: Always use a nylon bore brush of the appropriatecaliber when using copper removing cleaner, as it willdissolve bronze brushes.After two or three shots, apply Hoppe’s No. 9 Black PowderCleaner & Patch Lubricant to a bronze brush and run it downthe bore and back.Replace the brush with a cleaning jag and run a series ofpatches through the bore until they come out clean.

Wipe down the muzzleloader’smetal surfaces with a clean cloth. Switch to a Hoppe’sTriple Threat Cloth and polish metal to a high luster.22Once you are finished shooting for the day, it’s a good ideato clean the flash channel.
