Baby wipes

Post by R-71 » Fri Mar 17, 2017 5:35 am

Anyone ever cut these up and used them for between shots swabbing?

They do a pretty good job, not to wet and the solution that is in them really clean the BP and lube.

They're pretty inexpensive as well, I can make 9-12 patches from a single wipe depending on the the towel size.

I don't use them between shots but I often use them at the end of the day. I'll take a half a sheet and run it through on a brush a couple of times. Works well for me. They are tough too, so they don't tear in the bore.

Avoid the flushable ones, I found they tear.

The ones I have been using here in Oz are treated with Aloa Vera. I noticed at the World Long distance ML championship that the Italian/Pedersoli team members were using Aloa Vera on a Pad, to roll their PP bullets on just prior to loading. !!

I used these for the first time this week, and they worked great. I use the Huggies ones that are in bulk from Costco ('cause that's what we're using for my 2-y.o.). Cleaned up the bore nicely, and let me only having to swab the bore with a couple patches with Shooter's Choice once I got home.
The only bullet you fire is the one in the chamber. Make it count.

I think the liquid part of the wipe is witch hazel ,not alcohol .
