So I have a bag full of cotton .270-.30 caliber patches, or so they say. The patches will not fit. I even got one stuck pretty well in my mosin-nagant a while back, not knowing they were supposed to be cut down. I got it out, thankfully. I mean if they wont fit a bore that is slightly above .30 caliber, I can't imagine it fitting in a .270
I'm using a hoppes #9 .30 caliber kit. The patches in question are just regular 2x2 cottons. How much would one cut them down to have them fit with a push-through jag? would 1x1 be too small?
