I want to try to disolve salt in a small amount of Hoppes #9. If that works then I don't see why that's not enough to clean with after shooting corrosive ammo.
So the manufacturer stating that it does not remove corrosive salts is not enough for you?


The old SurplusRifle site had an excellent test of a bunch of different cleaners on how they removed salts. Thanks the the wayback machine, the PDFs of the tests are still available. Hoppes #9 is at the bottom of file 2. Here is a preview: "Probably one of the worst test strips seen with very heavy rust formation on the treatment areas."

But hey, it is your rifle, if you want to use Hoppes #9, knock yourself out.
