How To Choose The Correct Cleaning Rod Length

We love to talk about cleaning gear! When customers contact us asking for assistance in determining the proper cleaning rod length for their rifles, our Technical Service Department is always there to assist. There are many variables that factor into selecting the correct cleaning rod length for your application. That is where we come in and can help simplify things allowing you to always make the correct decision.

What type of rifle are you cleaning? What is the barrel length? Are you using a rod guide? Does your rifle have a high cheek piece? These are just a few of the questions that dictate the proper rod length for your application. Too short and the rod will not clear your barrel, too long and you risk damage to both your rod and rifle.

To help simplify and assist shooters with this process, we developed our Rod Length Guide. Click on the picture below to view a larger version of the guide. Both visual and step-by-step instructions are presented to explain how to choose the correct rod length for your specific rifle types.

If you have any questions after reviewing the guide or the product pages, please do not hesitate to contact our Technical Service Department. It is our goal to make sure you have the proper cleaner(s) for your application.
