    Asked the tech. guy at Browning how easy it is to damage the crown when cleaning the bore, he said easy, suggested using a bore snake. What do you think/use? I used a regulat aluminum Hoppes rod a few times but I'd hate to think w/ my luck I already damaged it??? Thank-you! Reason I called him in the first place was because the manual says be careful.

    I would not worry, always use logic; a forgotten thing these days.
    Aluminum is shofter than steel, some think not.
    Over time you can wear anything down with enough rubbing.
    Generally most folks over clean rimfires these days, mainly because they were never taught real basic habits from experienced shooters.
    I never use a bore snake.
    Shoot it and enjoy.......

    Buy a short one piece Dewy rod, a jag and a bronze brush.
    Light barrel cleaning when accuracy drops off.

    I use bore snakes for every claiber I shoot. Sooooo easy to use. Pull it through from chamber end two or three times, put some oil on the end of the snake on the last pull through, you are finished cleaning the bore. No problems with the crown at all.
