    Bias! Bias! You have bias!

    Ok, pretending I'm the media aside, 15 is a loaded question. I use BreakFree CLP myself as the day-to-day cleaner and take the Sweets 7.62 or Shooter's Choice to the bores of the regularly used guns about once a year to scrub the copper out.

    I have Hoppes #9. Seems every new gun owner winds up with a Hoppes cleaning kit from Dick's, Cabelas or Wal-Mart since that is what everyone else uses. I still use it to do initial cleaning on new guns. I'll decosmo and do the initial scrub down with the brass rod, brushes and patches. Once the gun is clean, I'll put a degreaser on the metal like Gun Scrubber and then CLP is used to finish off.

    It's weird using CLP on a 100 year old Mauser or Mosin since it is a modern cleaner. I like the two part lube/clean aspect of it. That combined with the Hoppe's boresnake (their best product ever) makes most gun cleaning a quick task. Except for ARs. 60 seconds for the bore and 60 minutes for the action. Grrr...

    Matt, you make it too complicated! I use Hoppes #9 for cleaning anything that needs cleaned, gun or not. Then I use Hoppes gun oil to lubricate anything that needs lubricated, gun or not.

    I'm thinking of replacing my cologne with Hoppes.
