Dewey aluminum cleaning supplies

thoughts on these rods and jags, etc? they seem pretty dang nice but I haven't heard any reviews. I can see how they will definitely help with any false copper readings on the patches.

You want me to put my ear to the ground? Listen for hoof beats? Look for broken twigs?

Re: Dewey aluminum cleaning supplies

I bent the rod within a year. I now use a tipton carbon fiber rod, always straightens back out, and won't pick up abrasive particles that can ruin a bore.

Re: Dewey aluminum cleaning supplies

wow.....that's crazy. they use aircraft grade aluminum so that exact thing will not happen. I've heard nothing but good things about them so far. I've heard good things about Tipton as well though. I just like to gather as many opinions as I can before I make a purchase.

Re: Dewey aluminum cleaning supplies

What caliber?You have to be careful with the smaller caliber rods .17 and .20.
The Dewey rods are steel just the tip and the ferrule are aluminum

Re: Dewey aluminum cleaning supplies

this purchase will be for a 30 caliber gun(s)..... I'm torn on what to do....nylon coated or this? I don't want to buy Tipton because they are made in China

I use TK Nollan bore guides so I don't think any of my rods have a chance of touching my barrel or at least they haven't yet. I would almost feel safe using a jagged diamond rod with TK's bore guides. Best in the business by far although Mike Lucas makes one heck of a bore guide.
