Cleaning a .22.
When I do clean my .22 rifles, I use a bore snake. One pull through and I am done. I will check the bolt and breech face for residues and wipe them clean if there is a need. I will, from time to time, polish the stocks with some paste wax.
.22s don't need much attention. I call your attention to the old comment that more .22s have been worn out by cleaning than by shooting.
