Re: Cleaning kit
I've broken more aluminum three piece rods that I care to mention, right at the threaded area. I'm going to get some steel one piece rods and use on all my rifles, with a bore guide for the AR. Pricey but worth it. However, I also like bore snakes. The may not get your bore squeaky clean but they are good enough. I only use a rod once in a great while.
