Bore snake won't work on a Kidd barreled 10/22

I've tried to use Hopp's Bore Snake #24011 (.22, .223, 5.56mm) on my 10/22. The weight at the end of it won't go down the barrell. Any body have any experience with this product? What did you do to make this work? Thanks Joe

It can be tough, but it does work. In fact, I just used one on my 10/22 a few minutes ago. The easiest way I've found to use it is as follows: 1) safety the rifle, clear the chamber and lock the bolt open, and remove the magazine. 2) using your fingers feed the brass weight through the magazine well and into the barrel and push it in as far as you can get it to go. 3) Without pulling it out, turn the rifle muzzle down and tap it lightly on your shoe. You will see the cord start to be taken into the barrel. 4) Keep tapping lightly against the top of your shoe allowing it to feed all the way through until the brass weight is coming out of the muzzle. 5) Catch the weight with your fingers and begin to pull the boresnake through.

NOTE: It will be tough. It is a very tight fit. You will have to pull HARD.

That is what is called a "dry pull" ... if you want to clean and oil, apply some gun cleaner about an inch before the bronze brushes all the way to an inch after them. Leave the rest dry except for the "loop" at the end where you can put some gun oil on that, if you wish.

I have the same issue on my Henry lever .22. Just shake the barrel a little!

Get the Otis cleaning system for .17HMR it works on the 17HMR, .22LR and .22 mag. You control the tickness of the patch for every caliber. It worked wonders for me and I didn't spend much on it.
