    Surgical spirit for first two patches of pull through.
    Napier oil is good too.
    I like the shoot through felts. Bit of Napier oil on first one.

    Body fluid doesn't work, too much salt which is corrosive. Unicorn semen is not recommended either, too thick and sticky.

    I use Napiers gun cleaner on a 4 by 2 patch cut to 2 by 2 . it has to either vibrate or give a really loud squeak as it goes up the barrel . if not it is not working properly . when you first use it , be careful and do a dry one . as it is possible with the fluid on the patch it might be to tight and get stuck . luck HOLLY:)

    Thanks for the info guys, Holly a BIG thanks, that sounds like a great tip ( it has to either vibrate or give a really loud squeak as it goes up the barrel .)

    Andrew gillot told me he likes to climb inside his barrel with a sweeping brush on an extendable pole, and a bottle of jayes fluid working in a clockwise direction longitudinal front to rear.
