Anyone willing to mail me some for $5.00 ? Too cheap to order a full box online with tax and shipping just for occasional use in a year.
I will EMT the funds. Thanks!

I cut the end off Q-tips and use them for push through cleaning; works perfect.
I also shoot them through .177 PCP and CO2 guns, wouldn't recommend shooting them in springers.

How about just order theses at Cabela's for $5.99 and have them shipped to your local store for pick up?

https://www.cabelas.ca/product/42292/ga ... ng-pellets

This would give you a lifetime supply. Or wait and add to you next mail order from most any airgun vendors, when you are buying more pellets, etc.

No Cabelas in Toronto. My pellet supplier does not carry this.

Second using q-tips for .177. Apply your favourite bore cleaning solution to only one end of the q-tip. Place that end into the breach and push it through the barrel. The end with the cleaner on it dissolves the crud, the dry end swabs the crud out of the bore. Usually three or four will get a barrel squeaky clean. Just keep doing it until the q-tips come out clean. If you don't have a .177 cleaning rod, you can buy a 1/8"x24" brass rod at Canadian Tire for about $5. That's what I use.

I'm not multitasking. I'm doing something else until I remember what I was doing.

Shouda mentioned that my rifles are pumpers so cleaning/pushing anything from breech to muzzle does not appear possible.
Is the CT rod brass? Does not say in description.

If you have pumpers, just cut off the Q-tip ends, load them like pellets and shoot them out.

I always put a pellet behind when I shoot cleaning pellets.
