I have just read the November issue of Air Gunner, in particular the bore cleaning tip, well, and I would like to share my way of doing this. I use the filters that smokers of hand-rolling tobacco use. For my Air Arms S400 in .22, I use the larger tips. Firstly, I soak three or four in gun oil and fire them at an old Argos catalogue, then I put the same amount through dry. I find that this is enough to keep the bore clean. I hope that this tip will be of use to your readers. Ian Potter
Hello Ian That sounds like a good idea and I guess you could buy them from most corner shops. Am I right in thinking that they’re quite cheap, too? Even better! If people are going to use these in spring/piston guns remember that they need a normal pellet fired t hrough behind them, so it needs to be done where a strong and safe pellet trap is available to catch the shot.

Are these a cheap alternative to commercial wads?
