I cleaned my 30-06 yesterday, i can't seem to get the barrel to come clean as usual. When I put it away post hunting, I ran a couple hoppes patches down the bore, couple dry patches, then oiled patch. i knew it wasn't thoroughly clean. Yesterday went to really do the job. same procedure as ever, soaked hoppes patch, followed by brass brush, soaked hoppes patch, dry patches. usually takes a couple times and its clean. Problem now is, if i run a wet patch then a brush, the next patch is as black as if i never touched it. It has been at least a dozen tries using same procedure. Any thoughts on why it won't clean up as usual? Same ammo as ever, only a few shots through it last fall.
Sorry, long winded post.
