One of the many things I like about my .458 SOCOM is the ease in which I can clean it.
I don't often 'brush' the bore...but sometimes its necessary.
When I do....I can use my shotgun cleaning kit that has a full 5/16" diameter cleaning rod (NOT gonna bend that one). It does take four 3" x 3" shotgun patches (doubled over) to swab the barrel though. Not tight enough otherwise.
And when I'm done, I don't need a Bore Light and I don't need to squint one eye to look down the barrel. Just hold it up, both eyes open...and look right down it.
Slap it back together, go shoot more pigs. Easy Peasy...!
