Alan,

Check the wife's perfume bottle, chances are that she stashed some Hoppes away in hopes of distracting you in a weak moment. 8*)

Makin a batch o' "Ed's" may be as fun as dippin errors though.

Well...I done bought me a big ol' jug of Hoppe's.  I went to the gun shop to do an olfactory test - salesman was convinced I was more than a bit tetched.  Nothing compares to that wonderful #9 fragrance.  Most of the other stuff available is down-right nasty.

I catagorize solvents in two groups:

1) Removes copper fouling
a) Butch's boreshine
b) Sweet's 762
c) ammonia from the grocery store

2) Removes powder fouling
a) every solvent out there

My motto is pick powder solvent that smells good to you.

Hoppe's #9 has had bannana oil for the 40 years I have been sniffing it, and probably longer.

What smells best to me is Break Free Bore Cleaner. I bought a pint of it for &#3617 and put it in smaller bottles.

Shooter's choice smells horrible to me, so my bottle is going to last a long time.
