I contacted Lowey, and they don't make bore guides for centrefire rifles at this stage.

Yup, you’re right. I forgot that fact. I use the “possum hollow “ ones in my 70 Winchester and Mausers. Good guides out of materials that aren’t affected by solvent. Would buy local products if I could

I have some Rod Guides / bore Guides made out of aluminum I often wonder if some of the stuff on the Rod is from the rod rubbing inside the guide. I nearly always give the rod a wipe between patches. Always has some colour on the patch used to clean the rod.
