The right tool for the job.
I've used the Bore Snake on ALL of my firearms ever since they first appeared on the market. They are very easy to use. Just put your favorite cleaning solvent on the first part of the snake, a small amount of oil on the rail end of it, lock the action open, drop the weight into the chamber, let it drop out of the barrel and pull it through. If you feel that you need to, repeat the process. The bore of your barrel will be nice and clean.
