This may sound a daft question but having just bought my first bolt action rifle .223, I bought some patches and solvent for cleaning the barrel. The patches are small round ones? (I didn't take much notice at the time) How do I use them? When I had pistols I used to have a jag on a rod that I wrapped a square patch from a roll around to achieve this but I am at a loss as to how to use these round ones?? Can anyone help a novice?

You need one of the pointy jags.... they fix on your cleaning rod and they have a spike on.. you poke the point throught the patch.
Something like this;

If you have a Parker Hale rod you will also need an adapter.
Nothing worse than not being able to complete the job 'cos you didn't get all the bits!!

Yes make sure you buy the right jag for your rod!

I _think_ it’s something to do with Veganism.

No, it's when you wipe the mud off with a bit of oily rag.................

I have to admit, most of my rifle cleaning is a couple of pulls through with a bore snake, with Froglube on the last section.

Once in a while, I do go the whole hog and use the Solvent, PB brush and multiple patches
