Determining Correct Cleaning Rod Length

Bolt Action
For bolt action rifles, Bore Tech recommends that the cleaning rod handle stops before it passes over the rifle stock. This prevents interference with high cheek pieces, accounts for rod guide length, and keeps the rod centered in the bore.
1. Measure the Overall Length (OAL) of your firearms
2. Using measurement, select the next longest rod length available
Example: Rifle OAL= 42.5 Inches; Recommended Rod Length = 44.0 Inches

AR Platform
Measure barrel length, including any flash hiders, brakes, etc.
2. Measure rod guide OAL
3: Use measurements and below formula to calculate recommended rod length
Barrel Length + Rod Guide Length + 3 Inches = Recommended Rod Length
Example: Barrel/Flash Hide OAL = 18.0 Inches
AR-15 Patch Guide OAL = 14.0 Inches
Additional Length = 3.0 Inches
Formula Results = 35.0 Inches; Proper Rod Length = 36 Inches

Semi-Auto/Lever Action
For semi-auto/leaver action rifles that must be cleaned from the muzzle, Bore Tech recommends trying to keep the rod length as short as possible while making sure that jags and brushes completely clear the chamber. A muzzle guard is recommended.
1. Measure barrel length including any flash hiders, brakes, etc.
2. Using measurement, select the next longest rod length available
Example: Barrel OAL = 22.0 Inches; Recommended Rod Length = 25.0 Inches

Rod Length
All rod lengths are the "Working Length" of the rod. The measurements DO NOT include the length of the handle. For rod overall length, add 5.5 inches to the rod's working length.
