Registered Users do not see the above ad.

My good son used his Remington 870 a few weeks ago for varmit control . Just a couple of rounds of cheap 2 ĺí game loads did the job.

Anyway, I donít like firearms to sit around in a fouled condition very long during summer in Iowa.

Used some GI cleaning compound that Iíve had in inventory for a few decades.

Tried it out before on copper and lead fouling. Itís worthless for that!

MIL-C-372B worked real well for this application. My can is dated 1966.

Ed Harris had some things to say when I "searched" the product. Iíll leave that up to all of you interested.

Time to put some bovine burgers on the grill. I say that so you wonít ask me if they were recycled poop! Search about that if you need/care to?

MIL-C-372B is one of the older revisions. I think when it was discontinued it was up to revision D???? It is excellent to kill corrosive primer residue and you can leave it in bore as well. Prior to this the stinky stuff was IT. I researched the specs and the performance requirements were identical. I have a gallon can of the later stuff I am sitting on.

Ed Harris also has Ed's Red formula and I like it for many things.
