Cleaning a .22 rimfire barrel.....what, exactly, needs to be cleaned that could be harmful? There's no copper fouling. There is no leading. The bore is protected by the lube on the bullets. Residues from firing get pushed out on the next shot. Clean the residue out....take one shot and the barrel is just as "dirty" as it was before.
Even with high quality target rifles, of which I have two, the barrel is the part that needs the least attention.
