How often do you clean between shots? I have been doing ten shots then clean. If you guys recommend more often then I will change.

For smokeless or black powder?

For black powder, I clean after 3 or 4 shots.

For smokeless powder, if trying to accurize, I'll clean after 3-5 shots.

It is a personal preference thing. Some will say they never clean, some will say when the accuracy starts to fade. Some every 50-100, others ........................... So clean it when you want to . :wink:

Personally , my varmint rifles get cleaned after about 50 shots.
My shot gun, well I'd be embarressed to say. :oops:
My 7mm, once every year. Thats because it gets shot once a year.
My pistols , when they get dirty enough.

Good luck with yours. Al. :wink:

I clean my black powder when I can feel a change in the bullet going down, usualy after 3 or so shots. Do you notice a difference in accuracy when its just been cleaned?
