Wipe- Out now comes in a liquid called Patch Out, so no more funky nozzles/foam to fool with. I have no experience with it, but it sounds good. The Wipe-Out disclaimer that it eats finishes on old guns is cause for concern.
Kg-12 may be the best stuff, but it has a small drawback, for me. I don't have bore guides/rod for all my rifles and have taken to using the Otis cable to pull slotted tips and brushes through instead of pushing a jag/patch. I haven't found a suitable non- brass slot tip for patches and KG-12 works over brass components right quick, but suspect that a brass slot tip will still outlast polymer or other tips, even with immediate material removal. I oil the cable brass parts and slot tip before use.

That sounds interesting- I'd like to know more, if someone has more info (hint Ted). Anyone tried their own homebrew, ala Ed's Red? I've mixed Kroil, Hoppe's, some household ammonia and a few drops of light oil, but not really impressed with it.
