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...!

Yup!

And if you think that is horrify, I am sending it down a PacNor SuperMatch barrel.

Still shooting good after eight years and several thousand rounds.

I readily admit to being a gun cleaning 'heathen' with the SOCOM. wink

It's my 'pig gun'...not a match rifle...though it shoots sub MOA with most loads.

None...if everything goes right. Normally, they are shot under 'feeder lights' at a bait station.

But sometimes they wander outside the light or I will run into a group approaching or leaving a stand.

One of the lights is a Red LED the the other Tactical white light. The LED is only good for about 100 yds. or so, the white light can get me out to 250.

Always best to be prepared when hog hunting. I take it seriously and don't want to miss an opportunity to kill one of these pests.

Most of the time I don't use the rifle mounted lights, but I've had to on occasion and was glad I had them.
