I need something to take the solvents to the range that keeps them standing up I could get away with just one or two I think until I get home. Too many times I get home or to the range and the bottle of Hoppes as tipped over and spilled into the the range bag/box. The lids dont seem to seal well.

Jags, mops, brushes, adapters, bore guide, patches and stuff in a tackle box.

Oils, sprays and solvents in a cardboard box in the shooting cupboard with reloading gear.

And this is the reason ive started the thread sungazer...for the portable side of things...
I use KG carbon cleaner & the bottle with its spiky lid is really tall--I might have to find a different bottle to put it in, or use a different carbon solvent as finding an appropriate sized box/container is proving difficult.

Im thinking of going back to 2 kits--everything at home, & a portable/range/field kit each with its own supply of solvents.

I think you may be onto something with the two kits even if it is a partial replica of what you have at home. I am just so surprised at the Hoopes bottles that leak if they get tipped over. They seem to rely on the cardboard washer in the top. I think it has been more of the benchrest one as well which is the more expensive. I was not that into cleaning at the range preferring to chat with the guys who were cleaning theirs. A good time to get info from the experts. However it is easier to get that carbon out while it is still fresh and hot.
