Is there any special product used to clean a rifle after using corrosive ammo? I have a Romak-3 and a few Mosin Nagant's.
TIA

Consider buying some BALISTOL (Brownell's has it). This comes as a concentrate - dilute 1:10 with water. The product creates an oil-in-water emulsion that will wash out salts that will lead to corrosion, yet leave a thin film of oil upon drying. Stuff is great - I swear by it.

have lots of nagants-psl's-and shoot Bulgy surplus in my 74'

Boiling water-good flush-ammonia-then some CLP-The boiling hot water with a nice little funnel to run it thru the gas system and bore will get the metal so hot it dries almost instantly.Then a good swab with clp and good to go.
In the last 5 yrs i know i have fired 5K or better of corrosive ammo.Never
Had an issue on any of my rifles.

That's a good method ... or you can just use Hoppe's #9. Has ammonia in it, smells good, and you can get it just about anywhere. Ballistol is great but smells awful.
