Bore snake? Personally, I think they're one of the best jokes or myths in the firearms industry since someone claimed rimless bottleneck cartridges lay in the bottom of the chamber when fired.
Yep I have learned that bore snakes don't work all that well . For a while that was all I ever used . One day I watched a video by Ryan Cleckner from the national shooting sports foundation and how he cleans his rifles

. I pulled out one of my just cleaned after shooting 308s and cleaned it the way he said to . OMG the gun was SO dirty still . It was like mud coming out of the end of the barrel . It was like I had never cleaned it . The only time I use a bore snake now is on a new just out of the box rifle . Just to clean any foreign materials out before shooting . Well I guess I still use them on my .22lr they seem to work OK for them .
