Any one here discover 91+ % alcohol along with carb and or brake cleaner work great for cleaning rifles,,, not talking the barrel,,, just for other miscellaneous parts... ?

NOTE/CAUTION,,,, brake and carb clean is strong stuff test a small area before using on anything other than metal !

I run 91% down the bore especially after using a solvent to neutralize the solvent.

I use Ballistol with good results. Are you using things like alcohol, brake cleaner, and carb cleaner because of the lower cost?

I just use a foaming cleaner and patch it out good and a oiled patch if I don't plan to shoot it right away.

Sadly I haven't shot my 270 enough in the past 4 years that it needs cleaning crying

No i use it because spray pressure will blast out grease, oil, grime and dirt in hard to reach areas and it is quick to dry.

Ether starting fluid works good to ,,,, just dont be smoking while using... flame
