I like to keep my rifles clean to a point, (basic training) the bore fouling is the biggest problem I have, and now it's only minor. See copperfouling can build enough to impede accuracy, and what I learned was that until it diminished accuracy, there was no need to worry about it. But once accuracy left and copper fouling was the culprit then I started using a product called Eliminator from Bore Tech, and it works, I tested about five of the newest copper removers and this one won hands down.
Anyway if the accuracy hasn't suffered then don't work yourself to the bone, but when it does get the best copper fouling remover.
And AMP, Bart, a big part of cleaning rifles in the military was Discipline, and being able to do exactly as told.
