barrel cleaning--chromium


Recommended Posts

Bought my first benelli--very excited to give it a try! Question: are there any solvents that could harm a chromium lined barrel when cleaning? I have been using hoppe's and shooters choice on my other guns so I thought I would use these solvents on my new benelli when needed.

I've not seen anything yet that would hurt the lining in any Benelli barrel as far as cleaning goes. Personally, I just use a Hoppes Tornado brush (dry) and just swab it out. It's a stainless steel spiral wound brush and it works the quickest and the best for removing plastic or lead fouling. You'll need it too if you shoot any lead slugs through it, Benelli bores lead up pretty quick on slugs.
