I have been cleaning my rifle since it was new, 29 years; I"ve never taken it apart to clean it... actually, I"ve never taken it apart for any reason.I have always cleaned it from the muzzle. I bought my first complete rifle cleaning kit about 2 years ago, so my cleaning rod was a wooden dowel or a string with a patch tied to it.
That practice hasn"t damaged the crown.I clean the chamber and bore of carbon with bronze brushes and penetrating oil. I still use a wooden dowel rod as a push rod, all brushes and patches are applied in the muzzle. I"ll run the brush down the bore 10 times, dipping the brush in the oil 3 times, then I"ll let the oil sit for 10 or so minutes.When my patches come out clean I used to clean for copper but it doesn"t copper foul any more so there is no need. I will try every year or so just in case.The chamber brush came from a army sniper kit, it is a plastic coated cable whereas a 308 chamber brush is attached. I usually just apply some oil to the brush and spin it in the chamber the whole length.My bore and chamber looks as good as my new rifle.
It shoots sub-moa groups.I"ll finish by running a patch oiled with 10w30 down the bore to ward off rust, wipe the chamber with a 10w30 rag aided with a plastic tube, then wipe the action and other steel with the same oily rag. (I run a clean patch down the bore and wipe the chamber with a clean rag to remove the oil before shooting.)Every 6 months or so I"ll oil every part that pivots, slides or makes contact with another; then let drip to be wiped off the next day.Seems to work for me.
