Agree with others. I only use BB for storage. Night before or morning of the hunt I patch the barrel with solvent, fire a couple of caps and she's ready to go. Never failed to fire. I also use a boresnake when I'm feeling extra lazy. And I'm a guy who cold bore zeros. Meaning I'll shoot, clean, let cool between shots when zeroing, and try to do this in colder temperatures. Makes no sense to me to spend an hour on the range in the middle of the summer, heating the barrel up, only to load a cold barrel and hunt in the winter. Always worked for me.
