I've got a few hoppes bore snakes, i bought them all from an eBay seller named Lappy1960, pretty sure they are always under $20 from him, definately less then $25.

I tried 2 cheap chinese bore snakes, the 308 snake broke the 1st time i went to use it, and the 22 snake broke after maybe 5 or 10 uses

Pull throughs, i just make them im 5 minutes.

A barrel sinker with strong string and an old bore brush or jag. Or even just a loop in the end with some lightly oiled rag. There only use is to remove dust, dirt from a bore in the bush.
