The hot soap and water works quickly and gets results much faster. Tight jag and patches pump the water up into the bores and washes the fouling out quickly. It takes me all of 10 minutes to completely clean my guns. 2 or 3 inches of the muzzles are in the water and when clean dry very quickly. Do not forgo the black powder experience just because you are afraid to clean. It is very easy and a great amount of fun hunting or clay shooting with black.


That's incorrect. The old formula for "moose milk" is 70-80% water and 20-30% water soluble oil, such as Ballistol or Key Cut.

BTW, the mixture I mentioned was called "PAM".

If my shotgun gets wet, which it does regularly hunting waterfowl, I get home and blast it down with WD40. Then wipe that off with an oily rag with 3 in 1 oil.

Best product for field cleaning black powder is Ballistol, a cleaning rod and cloth patches (or folded paper towels) and a good bore brush.

Ballistol and water mix, "moose milk." I'd add a bit more Ballistol than 20%. I believe Ballistol is mineral oil, but don't know.

I flush my MLs with warm soapy water, let it set for about 5 minutes, then apply moose milk. After drying out the moose milk with cleaning patches, I spray WD 40 to displace water. This works good on ML guns, don't see any reason why it wouldn't work on a break action gun.

Ballistol is good stuff. They make a BP cleaning substance; can't remember the name of it, but it's supposed to be really effective.

The best stuff I have ever used was the old GI Bore Cleaner made for cleaning corrosive ammo residue, it is dark colored and smells like sheep dip, almost impossible to find these days and I am down to my last can.

I guess you can use all those additives but room temperature water is all the solvent you need to remove black powder fouling. Follow that with patches until dry and then wipe with your favorite quality rust preventative lubrication. I have been using this for years to clean my muzzle loading rifle and have tried all the others. Chemist involved with manufacturing black powder for a career tells us the same thing. Water is all you need and those other mixes work because they have water.

Don't forget to take your banjo Ed.


But what does this question have to do with double guns?


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.
