I know we are not suppose to let our firearms lead but sometimes it happens.
When it does I use Chore Boy copper pads to clean them.
Any tips on working with that stuff? Specifically, what do you use to cut it, and how do you wrap it on a brush or jag? I try to pull strands off the pads, but that doesn't work well. It's hard to cut with shears, and it will ruin a pair of scissors. I usually pull it apart with pliers. At best I end up with a ball of it on an old brush. Then I have to "swage" it down with some degree of force to get it into the bore.
There must be an easier way.
