  • Cleaning .17hmr

    Debating the idea of getting a 17 hmr but have had no experience with them and was wondering about cleaning them compared to cleaning .22 rimfires .
    Thanks for any assistance , Ron

    My trr savage .17 gets a pass with a boresnake after every shoot. I wipe the bolt down and re oil and a general wipe down. Others will say solvent and patches every 5 mins but i think thats overkill. If the accuracy drops off then give it a scrub, couple of rounds to foul it and continue on. As far as a .22 goes, they should last forever, dont need cleaning apart from rust prevention and keep the bolt clean and lubed.

          Cleaning an HMR can be as easy or difficult as you make it. You will have to clean it far more than a .22. The Boresnake method works well but they do require a good rodding out from time to time to keep it running spot on.

        My original post went with your other thread, but basically I said clean your .17HMR as you would with your centrefire rifles because of the copper coated projectiles.
        This is what I do and the accuracy has always been great.
