It's alot better to clean the barrel from the breech, deerslayer because the muzzle is too important to the bullets flight to screw it up with a cleaning rod!
Duly Noted Sir, I stand corrected, I do use the brass muzzle guide but I have to admit not always. Okeedokee I will clean from the breech from now on. Funny I learn something new everyday, I've been shooting since I was 5. Started maintaining my own Rifle at 14 (this Enfield was my first rifle) and have been shoving cleaning rods down the muzzle every since and here I am 34 y/o.
