Bore snake damaging the bore??

I bought a hoppe's bore snake for my 22lr rifle, and another one for my 40 s&w handgun since I heard a lot of good things about them and how they can save your time by make cleaning easier..etc.

However; when I am actually using it; it is very hard to pull through the bore and kinda make me worry that I am actually damaging the bore itself?!

I usually dispense some solvent into the bore and than pull the bore snake to the direction the bullet would go.

What do you think?
