U.S.A.-( We all have a wide assortment of gun cleaning tools/products and some of you may be wondering why we are writing about another. Very simply, this little “gem” is totally unique and a must-have for every hunter who ventures into the field.

When we prepare our gear for trekking or packing into the hills for a hunt, it is a rare person who takes their gun cleaning stuff with them. Yet, it is all too common for us to get dirt in the muzzle or action while hunting and then the dilemma. How to clean it out. In my younger days I looked for small sticks and ripped off pieces of cloth from a tee shirt as a swab. Smile if you want, but think of your own hunts… sound familiar?

The Real Avid Bore Boss Cleaning System is a handy and compact tool that is long overdue. It takes up very little space and the rubber casing protects it, and your other gear, from damage. Simply pull back the “rubber” TPR ring that covers the polycarbonate case to remove the Bore Boss.

The Boss is no ordinary bore cleaner. Instead of a weighted string, it has a poly-coated steel cable with a ball at the end. On the other end is a phosphor-bronze brush attached to a quality braided bore mop. You simply thread the cable through the bore, attach the ball end to the case, which now functions as a handle, and pull the Bore Boss through the muzzle. The brush breaks most of the debris free and the mop pulls it out. Bingo, a superb field clean and you are ready to shoot. Then, simply coil the Boss around the case, flip the TPR ring back in place and drop it back into your pack.

Can I get a custom one for .250 Savage?


Too bad they do not offer a .17 version! My .17 Bore Snake is pure hell to pull through my .17 HMR Savage bolt rifle!!!


Looks like a winner. NOW what will I do with the shopping bag full of ‘other’ pull through bore cleaners I already have? Decisions, decisions 😉


That’s a great idea.

Dr. Clary DID it AGAIN with another MSRP! Keep ‘um coming!!!!!!
