.308 bore brush for .303?

Post by Gun-nut » 27 Oct 2021, 10:19 pm

Anyone had success using a .308 bore brush in their .303? I understand the .308 should be smaller by about .03 as the .303 bore gauges at around .311. I haven't been able to find any .303 specific bore brushes so went with the standard .30 cal. Cheers for any advice fellas, I really appreciate it.

G'day Gun-nut,
The 308 brush works, a bit soft but it does the job.8mm works better if you can find one, but probably no easier than 303 to find. I use an 8mm Nylon on all my 303 and 30 caliber rifles but have 303 in bronze when I need it, Cheers.
