Q: Why are my patches so tight and getting jammed in the bore?
A: There are many factors that can lead to this issue. Presuming that you are using the correct caliber jag and patch size for your application (Please consult our Patch Selection Chart) there is a simple trick to avoid this issue. A commonly overlooked solution to remedy overly tight or jammed patches is what we call “Side Spiking”. Please see our Side Spiking article located in the Knowledge Center for detailed information.
Q: Should I use an undersized jag?
A: We typically do not recommend using undersized jags. We have designed and tested our jags to ensure they work properly in their respective calibers when using the correct size Bore Tech X-Count patches.
Q: What do I clean my jags with after use?
A: When using Bore Tech Cleaners, simply use warm water. We recommend rubbing the jags between your palms while warm tap water flows over them.
Q: What thread sizes are your jags and are they male or female ended?
A: All Bore Tech jags are male ended and have the thread pitch listed under the Specifications Tab on the respective product page.
Q: Why do my patches always turn blue when using Eliminator Bore Cleaner?
A: Eliminator or any other cleaner that is designed to remove copper fouling will attack all brass jags and remove the copper within the jag. To avoid this false indication of copper fouling in the bore, we recommend using our Proof-Positive Jags with all copper removing cleaners.
Q: Do I have to unscrew my jag before pulling my rod back through the bore to prevent damage?
A: A crown is not compromised nor accuracy affected by pulling a properly designed jag back through the bore. We take great care during our design process to make sure our jags have a flush, edge free transition when used in conjunction with the correct Bore Tech cleaning rod. Again, when used with the correct rod and in a proper manner our jags are 100% barrel safe.
Q: Are the Benchmark Brass Jags barrel safe?
A: All Benchmark Brass Jags are machined from 3600 series brass that is 100% barrel safe.
