Foaming bore cleaner + ballistol = too easy!

I just recently learned that gunslick foaming bore cleaner is water based and safe for BP. I've been shooting quite a bit lately and have been using it with ballistol and it sure works good! It's nice because it standardizes my cleaning regime. Now I can clean all my guns the same way.

Just a friendly FYI -- it's made things easier for me.

Water and Joy or Dawn are cheaper.

Very true but I'm already buying and using it for my non-BP guns.

Another one is M-Pro 7 spray cleaner which is a military proven gun cleaner that was reported to work on any powder fouling including black powder, 777, Pyrodex and smokeless.

Some folks really do want a single cleaner to use for both smokeless and muzzle loading guns.
And some residue can be very stubborn, especially when it gets into the nooks and crannies.
