Am finding it really difficult to push flannel through the bore when cleaning.
Using a standard .308 jag on a .308 rifle
Using 009 cleaner
Using flannels for .27 rifle and .32 and .38 pistol.
Also using 4 by 2.
Any thoughts ?

Are you cutting the strips of 4 by 2 in half?

Too much flannel/patch round your jag, or jag too large for the chosen patches?

Use smaller patches (cut them down perhaps) or a smaller jag. You want a fairly tight fit but if it gets jammed that's too tight.

Have you looked at the Proshot system? Correct size jag and patch for every calibre - you can't get it wrong.

another option is the paul clean system and associated roll patches, calibre specific jags and one size patch for all.

Ah yes - seen these Italian guys at IWA - good kit. Fox Firearms are also stocking it.

I use a 2x2 patch & a .270 jag for .308.

There's this cleaning system too, which I intend trying soon:
