I've used Hoppe's for as long as I've shot and have never found another solvent do appreciably better for a well-handloaded weapon. Buy a big one this time so it'll last a while. Besides, the smell is worth the cost!
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.
