Cleaning rimfires

Any of you guys treat your rimfire rifles differently when it comes to cleaning them? Anymore, I take a wet patch to the muzzle to get the flash residue off, and clean the breach. Too, sometimes, a bronze brush I twist in and out of the chamber, but leave the rifled portion alone. Clean the bolt face and lube the bolt, reassemble and store.

Some fellas at the Olympic Training Center suggested that with the rimfire, it takes several rounds after cleaning for them to shoot well again, something about the lube from the bullets building up to a constant level down the barrel.

So this is what I do.
