It's the same.
The Big Bore name has an anchor in that it was originally designed for canon.

My bottles say KG 12 big bore. I use hoppes and repeatedly scrub out he bore, than run tight dry patch through. Then a tight patch with kg 12 on it, using the instructions. If the patch comes out heavy, run another tight patch with kg 12. Then a nylon brush with kg 12, then patch over jag with kg 12. Then a dry patch and then clean out bore with hoppes. I clean off all the tools/rods with warm soapy water.

Am not about to try all the copper cleaners available, but the only copper cleaner i have tried that came close was cr 10 (Think barnes used to make it)

Thanks. I was wondering because the kg12 I see in pictures and on YouTube is yellow. The kg12 big boar I have is orange. The big boar also appears orange in pics and on YouTube.
