7mm-08 Bore Brush

Post by Phantom 778 »

I hope this is an appropriate category for my question. What size bore brush do I need for a 7mm-08 japanese bolt action? Thanks

For the Type 99 in 7.7 Japanese I use a new .30 caliber brush and in the 6.5 Type 38, I use a .25 caliber brush. If you need to go larger you can use a .32 cal brush in the 7.7, and a worn down .30 caliber brush in the 6.5
Now if the Arasaka was rechambered for a 7mm-08 Remmington then a normal .30cal rod will be to large, Use a .22 Dewey rod and get a .280 cal. brush. Some like the brass/ bronze, some like the nylon stiff black ones. On a 6.5 Arisaka you need a thin Dewey rod, not .30cal. It is easier to find a 7mm .284 brush at most hardware stores or gun shops rather than a special .280 brush. It will say "7MM .284". Just be sure the threads are correct for what ever rod you use. I like the red handle Dewey rods.
