Anyone know what size shotgun boresnake would be good for a .50 cal muzzle loader, I can't seem to find one so thought a shotgun boresnake would work. Thanks

A 28 gauge would be the closest...it's .550"  I'm assuming it would be pretty tight as well.

You should phone around -  they are hard to find but I lucked in last year. A buddy noticed that Green Diamond had them and bought me one. Hoppe's Bore Snake .50., 54 caliber.  Work's great!

I ordered one from amazon, could of got one from China for $7.50 with free shipping but wouldn't have got it until October 2019, lol

I never think of ebay, I just checked your link 308forme and thats the same ones I saw on Amazon. I ordered one for my 30-06 but need the .50 cal sooner. Thanks for the info
