Stop being a cheap skate and buy a bottle of Butch`s Bore Shine.

I also use the old Br Army method of hot water from breech to muzzle to flush out salts from Chlorate primed ammo, mainly Russ military surplus, as it is ruinous on barrels if not removed. If the water is hot enough the Barrel will dry out pretty quickly and a boresnake with some Hoppe's no 9 or Young's 303 will do well

The British Army and most other armies never clean rifles properly when it comes to removing carbon and copper , I wouldnt touch corrosive primers , bore snakes are only good for removing oil prior to firing , they dont really remove anything from the barrel , Hoppes No9 is good when used with a bronze brush then patch out until patch is clean afterwards.
