Spoke to a friend about dry bore shooting. Indeed it refers to a bore that has been cleaned with a solvent.
He cleaned his rifle barrel to squeeky clean and dry, that is cleaned with a solvent. Upon using it like that it stripped copper big time leading to excessive copper fouling.
His words "never again"Shocked
 
So slight oil residue is needed.

depending on how heavy the oil you use (or light) and how much is left in the bore, the first shot at least will at least diesel or ignite what oil is there leaving a varnish carbon residue. bullet coating with moly or boron increases the time between cleanings substantially. say from 400-600 to 1000-1200 inthe case of a 308

Oh, but when you have to get that moly out (just enough to where it shoots again) expect some work. My best results have come from using those felt pellets sized to the bore. I put three or four on a little hex head bolt with threads matching the cleaning rod, and screw it in until I get just the right compression for a tightish fit. Put JB bore paste on it, and it gets with the moly!!! Few things clean moly by chemical action alone IMHO. This works...Steve
