Important suggestion: to make certain any patch shape (square, round, rectangular, or
triangular) wrapped around a standard jag does not get stuck at bore entry, the length of
a jag should be longer than or equal to the radius of the patch.
from tip to
top of base
Reason for jag length must be greater than patch radius: for small bores, diam 9
mm and smaller, when too much of a patch's corners reach over the base of a jag
where there is small clearance between jag base and bore wall, combo can become

Use a vise: to apply sufficient force to a rod or cable, it is best to have a gun in a vise.
Use a vise with flat panels so that vise force disperses widely, and wrap gun in a folded
towel. Do not use a vise with small contact points since too much pressure at these
points can damage a gun..
