I was in academy earlier today picking up a new dove belt and saw 12 ga "cleaning shells"... looked like you load and fire them and they are supposed to basically do the job of a bore snake. Anyone seen these or used these before? Just thought it was interesting. I got in the habit of stripping and cleaning my gun after every time I shoot it, so my barrel snake (just 2 months old) is already a bit beat up. So these shells seemed like something worth checking out if they actually do the job. Also I've realized I don't need to clean everytime I go to the trap range, maybe just clean the barrel.

Once a year? Sgt. Major Murray told us if we discharged our weapons and didn't clean them before taps, we'd go to hell that night. And he had the paperwork for the arrangements.

Once a year cleaning for me too. And that's why I like inertia over gas

All of my autos are gas. No failures here.

If hunting hard rain I always give them a good cleaning. Anytime after salt water hunting as well.

Duck season I clean after every hunt. Sporting clays I swab the barrel and call it good. Same for upland and dove unless it rains.


No matter how high a duck flies a hammer still breaks a window.

I saw those shells also. I say give them a try. I just don't see how they could help clean anything but the plastic residue in the barrel.
